Visiting. Iranians expect and appreciate punctuality. If your Iranian host is not wearing shoes, remove yours at the door. Greet any elders present first before individually greeting everyone with a handshake. Entertaining happens in the guest room, which is usually the most lavishly furnished.
What are Iranian families like?
Families are normally extended families and grandparents, uncles and aunts are very involved with each other and the younger members of the family both emotionally and financially. Family members are expected to spend lots of time with each other and socializing with relatives is a very important part of Iranian life.
