Jordanians are anticipating an extended holiday period in June, which is expected to last for nine days.

It's likely that the Eid al-Adha holiday will span from Sunday, June 16, to Thursday, June 20, followed by Friday and Saturday (the weekend), giving Jordanians a total of nine consecutive days off.

Eid al-Adha falls on the tenth of Dhu al-Hijjah, and Jordanians are awaiting an official statement from Prime Minister Dr. Bishr al-Khasawneh to confirm the Eid holiday dates.
