Jordanian Prime Minister, Hani Al-Mulki, has issued a circular decreeing a non-working public holiday in Jordan on Monday, December 12, 2016, to commemorate the upcoming annual Jordanian non-working public holiday for the Prophet's birth anniversary.
The aforementioned announcement of Monday, December 12, 2016, as the date of the upcoming annual Prophet Mohammad's birthday non-working public holiday in Jordan, this year, is in line with the list of official non-working 2016 public holidays in Jordan, as released late last year (2015-10-22).
Recall that last year (2015-12-04) and the year before that (2014-01-07), then Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, had moved the 2014 and 2015 non-working public holiday in Jordan for Prophet Mohammad's Birthday from Monday, January 13, to Sunday, January 12, 2014, and from Wednesday, December 23, to Thursday, December 24, 2015.
