They are both elements of culture. Myths are among the stories a culture tells about itself, while rituals are a class of actions taken by members of that culture. So, Parson Weems' fable about George Washington and the cherry tree is one of the myths of American culture, and having a large festive dinner featuring turkey on the 4th Thursday of November is one of the rituals of American culture. Sometimes, we use myths to explain rituals.
