A typical family will eat three main meals per day. Breakfast will usually take place at 7 AM, lunch at 1 PM and dinner and tea around 6 PM.
Breakfast is usually eaten at home before departure for work or school. Children will mostly eat at school except more senior students who may be allowed out to a restaurant or cafe. Workers will usually lunch at a cafe near to their place of work unless the company provides food itself. Dinner is only eaten out as a treat although the young generation eat out more often as do students.
The senior member of the family will usually sit at the head of the table. One should keep their hands should usually be kept above the table not because it would be rude not to, just because it is easier to communicate at the table if one's hand are in sight. Elbows should not be on the table but it is common to rest one's wrists on the edge of the table.
