Holidays & Observances in North Korea
North Korea is a country in Southeast Asia. Most of the current culture revolves around the idealization of the country and the communist leaders. Religious observances such as holidays are not allowed, though some may still be practiced in private. Buddhism and Confucianism were once the most important religions in the country.
