The difference between ritual and ceremony is that a ritual is done on a regular basis and a ceremony is a special one time occasion.

No ritual, ceremony, or idea on this page is required behavior.  People enjoy ritual and ceremony, and these are nothing but suggestions or things others have done.  The ideas presented here are to give YOU ideas on things you may want to do in your life.  Designing a ceremony that means something to you is the whole point of this page.  A very good link on designing a ritual is here.
