Balinese Baby’s Anniversary  

by on Monday, 28 November 2011No Comment | 229 views

When your Balinese friend gave birth to a baby, she with her husband will hold a ceremony after 42 days, 105 days, and 210 days from the day the baby was born. If you are close enough with the parents you will be invited to their baby anniversary but don’t expect balloons or fancy cake.

If you are really invited, it is not an obligation but better you bring a little gift for the baby. You don’t come for the parents but you come to be a witness and to pray for the baby. All invitees will also do the same. Moreover, the Balinese neighbors will bring a super bowl with rice, sugar, coffee and the wrapped gift in it. Since this procession is not kind of formal one, the dress should also be not. A shirt with Balinese sarong is better.

Actually, Javanese also have a similar procession for the babies like in Bali. The general objective of this procession is to purify the baby, to shield the baby from the negative effect of having five senses, and to make the baby ready to start the life journey. On the 210th day, for the first time the baby step on the ground. And there is a unique procession in the end of 210th day ceremony. The baby helped by the mother will sell some food products and the invitees should join to the selling-buying activities. The price depends on the buyers. It is you who decided the price of the products sold by the baby and the mother. This selling-buying procession will end within 2 minutes, not so long, or if the goods are sold out.

After all the procession completes and the holy priest who lead the ceremony have left the baby’s home then it is time to enjoy the free Balinese dishes. You will be assisted with young ladies from the husband’s family around the buffet table. So make sure to let your stomach half empty if you are invited to a baby celebration to enjoy the Balinese cuisines.

After 42nd, 105th, and 210th day then the next anniversary will be held once every 210 days.
