This Eid Al Adha is going to be doubly fabulous because it’s likely to fall on Tuesday, August 21, or Wednesday, August 22, meaning a four-to-five-day holiday, weekend included.

It all depends on the sighting of the new crescent of course, but it’s safe to say that you can book that family trip you’ve been longing to go on since Eid El-Fitr.

The crescent can be sighted with the naked eye, if the weather permits, or through a telescope.

Things to do during Eid

1. Make the most out of the weather before winter blows our way and spend a few days by the pool or on the beach.

2. Explore the beautiful history of Jordan by visiting the ancient ruins gracing many spots across the Kingdom.

3. Take time out to pursue one (or more) of your hobbies.

4. Spend time with your family and relatives (that’s what Eid is all about, after all) and make your gatherings more enjoyable by going traditional and playing a board game.
