Why is it so rare?

Hospitality is something that we expect. However, in every day I am actually shocked when I notice that someone is polite. No matter what work we are talking about, majority of people are rude and uninterested. Therefore, hospitality is a virtue of a great soul that you sometimes encounter and afterwards feel happy. You don’t even expect that it should always be like that.

In ancient history, there was a kind of a coat of arms that represented hospitality that was called trestle. Stranger received food, shelter and safety. Today we are happy to receive a smile 🙂

Hospitality refers to the relationship between a guest and a host, wherein the host receives the guest with goodwill, including the reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers. Louis, chevalier de Jaucourt describes hospitality in the Encyclopédie as the virtue of a great soul that cares for the whole universe through the ties of humanity.[4]
