I understand exactly what you are thinking. The problem here is that there are no traditions nor culture anymore. We had many different traditions and cultures all over the country, and was pretty fragmented.
The war came in the 90ies and everything went upside down. Massive post war emigration, then the immigration from B&H, internal migration etc. All those people bringing their own culture/traditions and not even trying to fit in with the locals. Actually it is the reverse. They are trying to push their traditions on the locals.
A lot of those people were living pretty much like in the middle ages until last couple of decades when cars came into their isolated regions. So you have a situation where everyone hates each other's guts; you have a mix of many different traditions in different areas.
At the same time there is some kind of quiet push from some influential people who lived in US or Canada for americanization of some stuff. Namely academia and medical aid. Heck, even some of our weddings are some ugliest frankensteins of local and american traditions in the last years. And some people would say: "well it is a tradition". BS it is!
All that culture and tradition went down the drain. We're living in a time of anti-intelectualism, anti-culture and complete disrespect for other human beings.
Sorry for ranting.
