Yes, that's right we do that here.It is very good custom to say Hello even to strangers and give them a smile. Some people think it is not genuine but I don't think so.
I had same experience 20 years ago and since that time the answer to the stranger's Hello is always positive and with huge smile like this

Yes we do too. We say Hallo to strangers on the street too. But Hallo is not so common among close people. We more use 'hey' and 'hoi' to our friends and close people.
But there is a mother with 2 young children who always crosses a street in the morning, where I pass too. I started with Hallo and now I just say 'Hoi!' and smile at the kids. I don't know her at all, but I see her everyday with her 2 children and our ways of greeting have become more informal.

You know, these (saying Hello to strangers), are the kind of thngs you do regularly, but never really realize that it are precious values of a society. So it was a good thought to start the day with today. Thank you.

a simple hello look likes a golden key for open the new doors,so isn't worth to use this key for open planty doors everyday without any reason

Words are not always necessary!! I often just smıle at a stranger and usually you get a smıle back. I have a habıt of just talkıng to the next person ın the queue and sometımes they ıgnore you others wıll speak. What ever the mode of language for hello! always smile with your eyes as well as your mouth! It is contagous

Hello is often not the first term to greet someone, it is normally "good morning" or "good afternoon" (formally) I always say hello on the phone at home but at work good morning or good afternoon. If I see friends I might say hi how are you, or long time no see. The more you think about it, really how often do you say "hello"?? What a puzzle

i agree no need to words just a friendly smile enough sometime,and many ways to say hello or something as the shown our modesty

from where i'm from... eh hummm...

'Have you eaten?' or 'Have your meal?' is widely use lol... maybe because we're third world country that food is difficult to come by in those days that the phrase stuck until today...
