House warming is always a fun and fresh way to start at a new place, but it's not the same in all countries as 'A Sweet Welcome' infographic shows.

In America, flowers, a bottle of wine or a box of cheese is ideal to offer someone when they've landed in a new home. It's usually an informal party where family and friends gather around to mingle. This infographic is by MyMove.com, and it shows the gritty details of world customs when it comes to house warming parties.

In places such as India and Thailand, people take on these parties as rituals. In India, priests come to bless the home and in Thailand, homeowners wait for a special lucky day to move in, which usually lands on a Friday or Saturday.
