Today the Balinese celebrate the day of Galungan, which commemorates the triumph of Dharma over Adharma, or good over evil. Second in terms of significance after the Nyepi day of silence or Saka New Year, this observance comes twice a Gregorian year, as the Balinese use a 210-day calendar system known as the pawukon which serves as the basis for daily rituals, temple anniversaries and holidays on the island. Shortly leading up to Galungan, bamboo poles decorated with young coconut leaf decorations line the streets all over Bali. This is a unique welcome to Bali if you happen to be on the island around this time. The scene usually lasts until Kuningan, another associated observance that comes 10 days after Galungan.
