Once every 210 days, Bali will celebrate Saraswati, or, freely translated, “Knowledge Day”. Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and nature.
On Saraswati day, the Balinese people will bring offerings to the holy books and scrolls in their houses. Generally, in the morning, students will celebrate Saraswati at school, and any Balinese people with office jobs will make their offerings at their workplace.
In the afternoon, people are not allowed to read or write books, because all the books are blessed. In the evening, people will read books (preferably religious books) at their home or in the temple.
