Saraswati Day honors Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of education, music, arts, wisdom, and learning, and occurs every 210 days on the Balinese calendar. People clean and dust their books the day before the celebration, and then make offerings to Saraswati on the day of the event. To emphasize the significance of the study, these presents are generally put inside books. Pagerwesi, which falls three days after Saraswati Day, is held to defend knowledge from evil (Pagerwesi literally means “iron barrier”).
UBUD FOOD FESTIVAL
The Ubud Food Festival Presented by ABC, which began in 2015, is a three-day cross-cultural culinary excursion focused on Indonesian cuisine. Every UFF has focused on showcasing Indonesia’s diverse cuisine, innovative chefs, and exceptional local ingredients. The Festival attracts audiences and chefs from all over the world each year to learn about Indonesia via its food.
Galungan is a 10-day festival that commemorates the triumph of good (dharma) over evil (adharma). Balinese Hindus believe that the gods descend to earth to join in the festivities and that the spirits of the deceased will return to their homes if offerings are left for them — look for penjor, which are tall poles decorated with fruit, leaves, and flowers and placed outside homes all over the island. This year it will occur in January and in June.
