Orthodox Good Friday in Jordan

Millions of Orthodox Christians commemorate Good Friday, also known as “Great Friday” to remember the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion. The Orthodox Easter dates usually differ from the dates used by western churches because most Orthodox churches retained some version of the Julian calendar, which is older than the Gregorian calendar, commonly used today.

Is Orthodox Good Friday a Public Holiday?

Even though Orthodox Good Friday falls on Friday, April 30, 2021, it is a working day. Most businesses follow regular opening hours in Jordan.

The crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ is remembered on Good Friday.
