| Mudik, Takbiran, and Ketupat || Oct 12, 2007 |
Thank you Ozden, Vicksy, and Mariam.
In Indonesia, after attending the special congregational prayer called Shalat Id in mosques or open fields, on the day of celebration and the following days, people greet and forgive each other by visiting neighbours, relatives, and friends. In some cultures, adults give small amount of money to children, who go around the neighbourhood door to door and wish everyone 'Selamat Idul Fitri.' People usually say:
Selamat Idul Fitri or Selamat Hari Lebaran (Happy Eid ul-Fitr)
Minal 'aidin wal faizin (May you be part of the people who return to purity and part of the people who are granted glory)
Mohon maaf lahir dan batin (Please forgive my physical and emotional wrongdoings)
Furthermore, in my country there are three important and interesting phenomena of Idul Fitri - mudik, takbiran, and ketupat. Mudik refers to activities where people are going back to their hometowns (from the capital cities where they work) to celebrate Idul Fitri together with their parents and relatives. Several days before the celebration day, airports, seaports, and bus stations are crowded with myriad people who want to mudik (go hometown). The police department always deploys numerous police officers along the mudik paths in a special operation called 'Ketupat Lebaran Operation' to control heavy traffic.
At the night of the last day of Ramadan, people usually do 'takbiran'. People, from little children to old men, recite the takbir with a microphone in a parade. They travel around the town and hit 'beduk', a large traditional drum, as a background music of the takbir.
Ketupat is the special and favourite dish during this occasion. It is made of rice boiled in wrappers of woven coconut leaves of adult fist in size. People will find it served at every house they visit. People say that Lebaran without ketupat is not complete yet.:D
