Why are the Scottish so friendly? 

Why are the Scottish so friendly? They never queue-jump waiting for the bus, say “Hello” to the bus-driver and thank while get out. And the bus driver thanks as well. This is just an example. Public life is that way in Scotland, at least in Edinburgh where I have spent my summer holiday. Is it because society is quite homogenous? Is it because of the climate? Or the history? Is it because of the small country (5,3 million inhabitants)?
