Omed-omedan is a unique kissing ritual that will place following Nyepi Day on 29th March 2017 in the village of Sesetan.
Nyepi is Balinese New Year and an annual day of silence when all activity comes to a complete standstill for 24 hours. The entire island will literally shut down on 28th March 2017 to deter all evil spirits and negative forces of the underworld from disturbing the peace. It is essentially a time of quiet solitude that the Balinese use for personal reflection.
All forms of activity will come to a complete standstill for 24 hours for Nyepi Day on 28th March 2017.
Part of Bali’s appeal as an international travel destination is its rich cultural heritage. Daily life on the island invariably revolves around a full calendar of ritual celebrations and ceremonial events. There is always something going on involving elaborate offerings and prayers to appease the Gods.
