May 25, 2021

It’s similar to the Fourth of July where people take a day off to celebrate their country and the independence this day is filled with parades and displays of patriotism taking place across the Kingdom. May 25th is Jordan’s Independence Day when the country was freed from British control. Jordan nowadays is Ruled by His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein. 

On the 25th Jordanian you will see many activities happening around town, with discounts on food, drinks and much more, in Jordanian streets on the week before the 25th you will notice the rise of Street Flag sellers around town, at the traffic lights too. Many of these sellers will be trying to sell you flags as a part of tradition for celebrations. 

On the day of the 25th, you will notice nationalism to the extreme, where Jordanian young people decorate their cars with The Jordan Flags, and start driving around the city in groups while beeping to show their love to their country. 

Many fireworks will be happening but not as much as it happens on the states where people gather to watch the Fireworks shows around their neighbourhood. 

The radio stations will be blasting with Jordanian National Songs, you will hear people singing and beeping. 

Sometimes we will have an aircraft show, where the Royal Jordanian Falcons Aerobatics fly over the sky of Amman.
