Synonyms of "Ritual" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Ritual and routine ?
A: They are similar, but the feeling of each is a little different. A routine is something you do on a regular basis: for example, if my morning routine is to wake up, brush my teeth, shower, and make coffee, and I do all of those things every morning, that is a routine. This might mean that I always do those things in that order, or maybe sometimes I make coffee before brushing my teeth, but this is always "my morning routine."
A ritual usually implies an action that is always done the same way and can't or shouldn't be changed (or would be very hard to change). For example, if I absolutely could not go to work if I didn't wake up, brush my teeth, shower, and make coffee in that specific order, that would be a ritual. A ritual is usually very important (to you or to your community or culture), and you might hear this in the context of "religious rituals" for example.
