Bali has a local version of Valentine's Day

Tumpek Klurut. This is the name of the Balinese version of Valentine’s Day. Celebrated once every six months, Tempek Klurut originates from the words Tumpek, which means bringing one’s self closer to God, and Klurut (affection). So the meaning of this Balinese day is bringing one’s self closer to the Creator by showing affection to all.

The day is also called odalan gong – the anniversary of musical instruments – as the day is believed to be the right day to tune instruments.
