Cultural activities are activities which are done according to the culture of a certain place. In Tanzania we have different cultural activities like marriages, funerals, harvesting celebrations, ritual celebrations and games.
Games are physical or mental competitions that have rules and have participants in direct opposition to each other. There are different types of games, for example, football, basketball, handball, baseball, rugby, cricket, tennis and netball.
Football or soccer is a game played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball; it is played in a rectangular field with two goals at the end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into a goal. The goalkeepers are the only players allowed to touch the ball with their hands while it is in play and only in their penalty area. Outfield players mostly use their feet to strike or pass the ball, but can also use their heads or torsos. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the game wins. If the score is level at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/ or a penalty shoot out depending on the format of the competition.

Talking about Marriages
Marriage is a relationship between husband and wife or a ceremony in which two people are married to each other. The type, function, and characteristics of marriages vary from culture to culture, and can change over time. In general, there are two types: civil marriage and religious marriage, and typically marriages employ a combination of both (religious marriages must often be licensed and recognised by the state, and conversely civil marriages, while not sanctioned under religious law, are nevertheless respected).
