The difference between heritage, tradition and culture
What is heritage?
- something that comes or belongs to one by reason of birth.
- something which is inherited from one's ancestors.
What is tradition?
- tradition is the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, especially by word of mouth or by practice.
What is culture?
- culture is defined as the behaviours and beliefs of a particular social, ethnic, or age group, as well as the ways of living built up by a group, from one generation to another.
Traditions and cultures (human habits) does not include religion. Religion is the same as being religious and believe in a god - not everyone is a believer, but live in societies with traditions and cultures. A religion can be distorted and misinterpreted and used to war and destruction and use as a weapon to control people or countries.
