Although Galungan falls on a Wednesday, most Balinese will begin their Galungan ‘holiday’ the day before, The first day is called penampahan. On this Galungan day, Balinese Hindus prepare all the offerings and decorations needed for galungan day.
They also prepare a lot food, including lawar (spicy vegetables normally mixed with raw blood). In fact, well before this day, people have already started making cakes and slaughtering the pig needed for the pig dish. These days are called penyekeban and penyajaan.
The next day, manis galungan, is a time to get together with the family and catch up with more distant relatives, who may have come from far away to pray at the sanggah.
