In Indonesia there are many strange and bizarre festivals, but perhaps the festivals in Indonesia is still less weird with 7 festivals which I will mention in here:
If we talk about the strange, nothing is more bizarre than this. The festival is celebrated in the southern part of India, or better known as the "Thaipusam" is also popular in Singapore and Malaysia, but the celebration of this festival in South India is beyond imagination.
Thaipusam is a Hindu festival celebrated by the Tamil community on the full moon day in January or February. Thaipusam literal meaning of the word, means the star at its highest point and the festival is celebrated because on that day Goddess Parvati gave Murugan a lance so that he can defeat the evil demon Soorapadman. This festival starts where people cleanse themselves by bathing. They spend most of their time in prayers and prefer to fast on that day. However, meat is the main attraction of this festival. It is believed that the greater the pain that is received it will be blessed by God and therefore the fans through the mouth, tongue, cheeks, chest, abdomen, and back with a sharp needle. If you are someone who is easy to pass out, please stay away from the festival.
