(1/14/2013)

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has fixed 21 “local” holidays to accommodate important dates on the Bali Hindu calendar. These holidays are in addition to the 14 official national holidays and five “shared holidays” that have been set by Jakarta for 2013.

The provincial spokesman for Bali, Ketut Teneng, told the National News Agency Antara, “these local holidays specifically for Bali are intended so Hindus can perform their religious obligations.”

He said that among the 21 “local” holidays are for the celebration of Hari Siwa Ratri – two days of meditation on past sins falling on January 10-11, and Hari Saraswati - a day in honor of knowledge and learning on January 12, 2013.

Hari Pagerwesi – a day for enhancing religious beliefs falls on January 16th.

The three-day celebration of Nyepi (The Official Day of Silence) and the Balinese New Year of Saka 1935, which includes Tawur Kesanga, Hari Suci Nyepi and Ngembak Geni – will fall March 11-13, 2013.

Hari Suci Galungan
takes place on March 26-28, 2013, followed 10 days later by Hari Suci Kuningan April 5-7, 2013.

Hari Saraswati, which reoccurs once every 210 days, comes twice in 2013, falling again on August 10, 2013, and similary, followed again by Pagerwesi on August 14, 2013.

Also repeating their appearance earlier in 2013 will be Hari Raya Galungan on October 22-24, 2013 and Kuningan falling on November 1-3, 2013.

The governor’s decision on “local” holidays was issued in a letter date October 10, 2012. In that letter Pastika called on government departments and agencies to organize staffing to ensure all services, especially essential services, are maintained over all holiday periods.
