Nyepi Day, part of Balinese New Year is a great starting point for learning what it means to celebrate Bali-style. Six days of celebration range from parading and partying to spending an entire day in silence. You can’t have the enthusiastic fun without the thoughtful reflection, and this holiday embraces that. The most steadfast of Balinese may even spend their silent 24 hours in still mediation. Nyepi day is one of the most popular Balinese Holidays and definitely a memorable day to experience when in Bali.
GALUNGAN AND KUNINGAN
Galungan and Kuningan emphatically celebrate the triumph of good over evil, or dharma over adharma, as the Bali-Hindu celebrators put it. Twice a year, the Balinese spend 10 days acknowledging the spirits of their ancestors, reveling in floral displays throughout the streets, eating traditional food and enjoying time with the family.
