They use rhyme and jokes in a relay of comments about each other. The traditional Maltese dance is an interpretive routine called miltija, which describes the victory of the Maltese over the Turks in 1565. Rain, rain, rain
that the grass may grow.
We shall give the grass to the goat
and the goat shall give us milk.
Ill take out my sheep to graze,
and I'll make me a shirt of her wool Parturient women had great faith in the efficacy of the saints staff, which they held in their hands during childbirth. Having safely delivered their child, they adorned the staff with a silk ribbon. While giants, witches and dragons feature in many of the stories, some contain entirely Maltese creatures like the Kaw kaw, Il-Belliega and L-Imalla amongst others. The Maltese feel strongly about maintaining spiritual (or ritual) purity, so many of these creatures guard forbidden or restricted areas and attack individuals who break the strict codes of conduct that characterize the island's pre-industrial society.
Food is an important part of Maltese culture, incorporating traditionally prepared Maltese food, cooking and setting up dinner gatherings which usually contribute to the closer-knit families and communities found in Malta. The Maltese are particularly fond of rabbit and many Maltese restaurants have rabbit as their speciality dish. Other dishes found on the menu in Maltese food speciality restaurants include the rather exotic kangaroo meat and quail. Maltese bread is well known and loved by locals and tourists alike. Its hard crust hides a very tasteful, fluffy inside perfect for a nice summer’s day lunch with some sun-dried tomatoes and tuna. Over 90% of Maltese are Roman Catholic. 52% of the popul 52.6% of the population attends Sunday mass. The official languages of Malta are Maltese and English.
Sports in the Maltese Islands started developing in the period during which Malta was a British colony. The English settlers and servicemen started to practice the sports they used to take part in back at home. Cricket, athletics, polo and horse-racing were already established activities in the nineteenth century. The most famous sport in Malta is football. The national stadium is called Ta' Qali Stadium. 1.
Deal dominoes out to each player. For 2 players, deal out 7 tiles each. For 3 or 4 players, deal out 5 tiles each. Put the rest of the tiles in the "boneyard."
Determine who goes first. The player with the highest domino when adding both sides together begins and sets this domino in the center of the table. This starting tile is called the "spinner."
Go clockwise around the table taking your turn. Place a tile with the same suit on the spinner if you are the next player. Each player afterward must also place his tile on the spinner until there are four tiles around it--this is called the spinner's "four arms" and takes the shape of a Maltese Cross.
Draw a tile blindly from the the boneyard if you do not have a tile to play on the spinner. If you draw a tile from the boneyard that you can play, go ahead and set it. If not, pass to the next player.
Add a domino to the end of one of the arms when it becomes your turn, placing it crosswise. In this phase of the game, this domino must be a double (both sides equal). All four arms must have a double on it before you can continue the game. If you don't have a domino to play, draw from the boneyard.
Place a non-double or a double domino on the arms alternating between laying them crosswise and long-ways while building the arms.
Win the round if you are the first player to get rid of all your dominoes and shout "Domino!" Take the total number of pips (dots) from the players remaining hands as your score. Win the overall game of Maltese Cross Dominoes when you reach a score of 100.
