‘Poé Natal’ = Christmas

Culture | Thursday 24 December 2009 | sundanesecorner.org

A Christmas tree in the yard of St Peter Cathedral in Bandung is made of some materials, which were well known in traditional Sundanese life, e.g. ‘barangbang’ (dried leafs of coconut palm), ‘nyiru’ (a kind of winnow made of bamboo), ‘sapu’ (rice-straw), and ‘samping kebat’ (a long sarong which is not sewn together). It marks this year’s ‘Poé Natal’ (Christmas). (Photo: Hawe Setiawan)
