Penampahan Galungan

31 October 2017

Penampahan means “slaughter” in Balinese and it is the final day of preparations before the actual Galungan day, which falls on 1 November 2017. Preparations usually begin 25 days before the big day and on this last day, adults are kept extremely busy with the making of “penjor”, “banten”, offerings and the slaughter of pigs and chickens, which are later used in traditional Balinese dishes such as lawar, babi guling and satay. Children usually look forward to this day, as the atmosphere in every home is similar to that of a big family party.
