"We can meet face to face with friends, relatives, neighbors and the surrounding environment," he explained.  Towards Eid al-Fitr, he continued, people want to release their longing to stay in touch with their hometown by carrying out homecoming trips in a smooth and orderly manner.

Traces of the tradition of delivery from the kingdom to the present  Jakarta (ANTARA) - The culinary historian of Padjadjaran University Fadly Rahman said the traces of the tradition of sending Eid gifts can be traced to the moment of the harvest festival which took place during the 16th century kingdom.   "Eid delivery, which is currently popular among the Indonesian people, is a form of transformation from the tradition of delivering agricultural products that are offered by the people to the king and then from the king to his people," Fadly said to Antara, Monday.  Fadly explained that during the royal period, there was a tradition of people delivering crops to the king. "And when the king holds a harvest party, usually he will provide processed products and various kinds of food and cakes, which will be brought home by his own people," said Fadly   brothers and sisters, as well as friends that have occurred to the present day.  During the colonial period, reciprocating Eid gifts had also emerged among families. The delivery is in the form of various types of main dishes typical of Lebaran such as ketupat, opor, curry, and rendang as well as traditional wet cakes served in a basket.  Fadly said that the delivery tradition in the form of an exchange of baskets shows the uniqueness of an agrarian society. In addition to functioning as a container for provisions, socio-culturally, the basket has a symbolic meaning as a glue for relations between neighbors or relatives when used for delivery.  "When it is sent in the form of a basket, we will spontaneously reply. 'Ah, shame if we return it empty'. Then we will fill it back with food," he said.  During the colonial period, pastries such as nastar, kastangel, cat's tongue, and snow white in jar packaging became known and became Eid gifts given by European families to indigenous priyayi families.  In its development, now the delivery has been transformed in the form of hampersand parcels with more modern packaging. Although the form has changed, Fadly said the essence and meaning of the delivery have not changed significantly.  But nowadays, said Fadly, many people send gifts as a sign of gratitude or holiday greetings from colleagues without expecting a reply or without exchanging them. This happens in line with the shift in delivery that has been commercialized or used as a business area.
