Traditional or Conventional?

Traditional is something that has been passed from generations to generations. In other words, it’s the way things have always been done in the past. In order to say that something is traditional, it must be long established.
 
Conventional is something that is generally expected by people. It is based on common things in specific cultures, at a specific time. In other words, to be conventional, something must be widely practiced. If something is conventional for a long period of time, it will become traditional.
 

For example, it’s conventional to make Turkey and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving in US, but it might be traditional to make chocolate brownie instead of pumpkin pie in your family.

It’s conventional to have a birthday cake for one’s birthday in most countries, but maybe in your family it’s traditional to eat pizza instead.
 
It’s conventional to eat moon cakes in China during Mid-Autumn Festival, but maybe in some Chinese family it’s a tradition to eat chocolate cakes.
 
I hope this makes sense.
