He displayed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honor of his excellent majesty many days, even 180 days. Bible

“180 days.” Some historians doubt whether it would be possible to have a single feast that lasted half a year. For example, could the officials of the kingdom really be away from their posts for that long? They suggest that the feast lasted half a year but the dignitaries came at different times during that period. While that may be likely, it is also possible that the feast really did last half a year. We just do not know for sure.
