Happy February the 14th…I Mean Valentine’s Day

14 Feb

This year Tawjihi (the general secondary exam in Jordan) results for the first semester coincided with Valentine’s Day…and as per the Jordanian custom, there were plenty of gunshots heard everywhere to celebrate passing the semester.

So if you’re a foreigner and this was your first visit to Jordan and you heard gunshots all day, it wasn’t because of some angry dad/uncle/brother shooting at their daughter’s/niece’s/sister’s boyfriend for sending her flowers or chocolates…it was just a bunch of teenagers and their families celebrating their success the Arab way.
