Thoughts on Religion

I've never been really happy with any of the definitions of religion. About the closest I've come is my quip of "It is really difficult to discuss religion but I can gab about spirituality with anyone." The other day, I came up with what seems to be to be essence of religion and that is: to celebrate and/or venerate. It also involves spirituality in some way but not always directly. I think my biggest problem with finding a definition that I was happy with is that I was hung up on the forms and rituals of religion when those are demonstrations of religion rather than what religion is.

Thoughts on this?
