Question What has America retained from England, culturally speaking?

Mexico has retained bullfighting from Spain, her mother country. What has America retained from her mother country, England, in regards to a performing art or pastime of uniquely English origin? What is to America that is of English origin as bullfighting of Spanish origin is to Mexico?

It seems as America has more things of Spanish origin associated with her culture in regards to arts, humanities and entertainment than things of English origin. Take for instance the guitar, cowboys and the rodeo. Fox hunting with hounds on horseback, speaking of English culture, is practiced in very limited capacity in America. Bullfighting is much more widespread in Mexico and in other Latin American countries.

Guitars, cowboys and rodeo are much more popular in America than traditional English-style fox hunts.

...... IPA??

George Washington, the Father of Our Country, was an avid fox hunter with hounds and horses but America has largely slipped away from this iconic English tradition. Mexico and other Latin American countries, on the other hand, still practice that centuries-old Spanish art of bullfighting broadly today. Other former colonies, subjects and territories of Europe in this world seem to be culturally more connected with the Old World than America. Rigby and cricket is popular in Australia and America is about the only former subject of Britain not a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Yankees will pay no homage to any British crown.

In some ways its good we slipped away from the Old World's ways as a nation. America is the only nation with a constitutionally-guaranteed gun right.
