Plan Your Vacation Now! – List of 2019 Public Holidays in Jordan

Let’s face it, the best part about a new year isn’t that resolution you’re going to make, but rather the fact that you get to start from scratch with your vacation calendar at work! If you’re like me, I always check out the list of public/bank holidays for the year so I can see which ones fall on the weekdays, especially ones that fall on Thursdays or Sundays, because… 3-day weekends are what we live for!

Below is a list of the 2019 national holidays in Jordan and the day of the week they fall on so you can start planning your weekend getaways or staycations right now.
