Today is Galungan and in twelve days it's Kuningan. This is the big time in Bali and it happens every 220 days. It's the triumph of good over evil. Here's a Galungan video card I received today from a Balinese Buddhist nun, the only one I know of. That curved decorated long bamboo pole is called a penjur and we have one in front of our house now as do many people in our neighborhood and beyond. It's to Galungan what a Christmas tree is to Christmas.
