Kenduri Lebaran / Hari Raya Idul Fitri Festivy

Kenduri is a tradition in my village, where the host or home owner invite people in village to celebrate birth, marriage, new homes, death or other celebration. Our village also celebrate Idul Fitri by kenduri lebaran. Even this is celebration of Muslims, all people in the neighborhood invited in the kenduri.

The Kenduri in my neighborhood is very small celebration that held for just 15 minutes. The priest start to have a short speech and then pray. Then the host distribute the kenduri packages: cooked and uncooked. We can choose one of them to take-home.

How about Christmas celebration? Because of religious harmony in our neighborhood, we also have Christmas Kenduri in December who the host are the Christians, and all people also invited and came in the kenduri. What a peaceful neighborhood, and I just hope that this will last forever.

Happy Idul Fitri!
