Nyepi Report on March 7th, 2008

As you know that Nyepi on this year was already celebrate at March 7th, 2008. There's nothing special at the celebration at this year, just the same like last year. But one day before Nyepi, I was spend my time in Pakel, Desa gegelang, which is a small village in Karangasem. In this village the people celebrate Ngerupuk by held an Ogoh-Ogoh parade that start at 6.00 pm until 10.00 pm. Well although not as good as Ogoh-ogoh in Denpasar or Gianyar of course but The spirit of the villager wasn't lose from them.

On Nyepi lot's of villager still follow the rule and didn't come out from the house, if they didn't have urgent thing that should do. From my experience the people on the village was better that in Denpasar city when they celebrate Nyepi. On Denpasar I usually seen lots of people come out from their house and having some fun during Nyepi. Well that's a little report on this Nyepi. For you who miss this celebration try come next year at March 26th, 2009.
