The above is the list of 2020 public holidays declared in Jordan which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Jordan holiday calendar for 2020 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
Jordan public holidays are categorized into two, religious and national holiday carrying important Jordanian historical events. During holidays, all government offices and institutions are closed, and workers are given a paid day off on any official public holiday.
The Islamic religion dominates the nation of Jordan, so most religious holidays are based on Islamic culture and traditions. The Islamic holidays usually follow the lunar calendar. Ramadan is one of the significant occasions every year. The month is celebrated nationwide and has a significance of peace and unity. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to evening.
During the end of Ramadan month, Eid-ul-Fitr is held. This is an event graced with lots of festivities. Feasting and charity are the major activities that mark the end of the fasting period. The day is not just about the end of the fast, but it has more to do with uniting people and preaching peace and unity.
Christians are the minority group in Jordan. However, they are entitled to celebrate the Easter holidays though it is not recognized as an official holiday. Christmas day is celebrated nationwide.
Islamic New Year and Labor Day are among the most celebrated public holidays. New Year is marked by festivities and picnicking.
Jordan celebrates national independence (Eid al-Istiklal) day on 25th May. The day aims at remembering the liberation of Jordan's nation from the British colonization.
The people of Jordan gladly welcome public holidays since they get time to catch up with their families.
