Say it with a parcel: Lebaran

Lebaran—the Indonesian name for Idul Fitri, the holiday that marks the end of Ramadan—has become associated with a developing tradition. To mark this Islamic holy day, businesses and city residents who can afford it, give each other brightly-wrapped Lebaran parcels (parsel Lebaran), a relatively new concept in Indonesia. The contents of these parcels vary. Formerly, they contained cakes, flour and syrup, but now their contents range from jewellery to household goods. Wrapping styles have also evolved: from boxes and rattan baskets to unique cabinet-like creations. During the Lebaran season, those in the parcel business make large profits, but many observers disapprove of the practice. Joni Faisal explores the local politics of Lebaran parcel-giving and asks why the trend continues to attract so much criticism.
