Tradition is something which is being followed since long. Whereas culture is some religious or ethnic diktat which becomes part of life.

Culture in the manner in which you live - Tradition is an historical way of doing something.

Tradition is way of living, expected to be blindly followed, no questions asked!
Culture defines that way of living and seggregates it from other ways of living by giving it a unique space to thrive on.
