PENAMPAHAN GALUNGAN

PENAMPAHAN GALUNGAN

SEPTEMBER 6, 2016

Etymologically, the meaning of “penampahan” literally corresponds to what the day is actually all about. Penampahan means slaughter, and yes, Penampahan Galungan is the exactly one day before the big Galungan celebration, of which the main agenda is to slaughter pigs for the next day’s festive traditional culinary part of the religious celebration.

 

While the men will be busy slaughtering the pigs, the women will have their hands busy preparing the colorful offerings of all sorts, both the ones involving the various colorful food, fruits and flowers.

 

So if you happen to jump on your scooter and cruise pretty much any part of the island on this particular day, chances are you will come across a whole lot of “in the making” situations as well as “behind the scenes” of the charming, colorful and joyful Galungan the next day, making the experience a nice sequel with better understanding about the meaning and value of festivity, beyond the colors and beauty that meets the eye.
