1 June marks Children's Day in North Korea
One of the summertime national holidays in North Korea is Children's Day, on 1 June.
There is a famous saying in North Korea that 'Children are the Kings of the Country' and significant attention is devoted to children's upbringing and education.
This is a day which is usually marked by student-oriented activities, events and celebrations.
Students get a day off from their classes, and participate in sports competitions such as tug-o-war, and races. Parents come to cheer on their kids, and the day is seen as a bonding opportunity for classmates.
