JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The joy of gathering with family, and post-Ramadan get-togethers between the nation's children, has again enlivened the Idul Fitri (Lebaran) atmosphere in various parts of the archipelago. Especially after the last two years, in which direct encounters were hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Idul Fitri celebration is a force to strengthen social cohesion.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo also rejoiced in gathering with his family at the Yogyakarta Presidential Palace. According to plan, the President and his extended family will continue their vacation at the Tampaksiring Palace, Bali, from Wednesday (4/5/2022) until the end of the Idul Fitri holiday. Meanwhile, Vice President Ma'ruf Amin and his wife, Wury Estu Handayani, gathered with their extended family at Ma'ruf’s Islamic boarding school, namely An Nawawi Islamic Boarding School, Tanara, Serang regency, Banten.
