Nyepi silent day Bali

On 9th of March we celebrated in Bali Nyepi or Silent Day which marks the Balinese New Year. Actually, on the balinese calendar we are right now in 1939. Before celebrating Nyepi, there are some procession especially the day before during the Ogoh Ogoh when Balinese people parade with big awful and terrifying characters around main streets. This ceremony happened just before the silent day which supposed everybody must stay at home and keep the light off. During this special day, you can enjoy staying quiet with your relatives and doing nothing. Moreover, since any light must be turned on, you may contemplate stars at night, you can get a wonderful and clear view of all constellations. Furthermore, Nyepi 2016 was different because of the solar eclipse which occurred at 7:20 am. For lucky ones who bought some special glasses they could watch it without any damage.
