Hi, i am sorry for not blogging recently. I was in a quite hectic days.
By the way, today is the first Ramadan. Every muslims in the world will be fasting. You can feel the atmosphere of Ramadan too here, since Muslims are very large number in this republic country.
This year, Ramadan is from 1 August to 29 August. Just like another Ramadan, the national tv stations (more than 10 stations) here has a Ramadan program for a month. Such as tv series with Islam theme (it can be comedy and drama), some tv advertisement will have Islam theme, and then a program about knowing Islam (such as the history, the teaching, etc) and some quizzes.
The national tv stations here usually adjust their programs according to religious day. for example, in Ramadan month and Idul Fitri, their tv programs will have Islam theme, in christmas day or easter day they will have christmas or easter theme, in “Nyepi” day (last day of Balinese calendar, when no work is done) the tv programs will have Nyepi’s theme and so on for Vesak and Konghucu (Chinese new year). Those are official religion in this country. Or if they don’t have the religious theme on their tv programs, they usually have felicitation advertisement for those who celebrate their religious day.[cel].
