The North Korean government has released a list of the official 2011 public holidays (aka. red days) in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Interestingly, January 8, the birthday of Kim Jong-Il's third son and heir apparent, Kim Jong-Un, is not listed as an official public holiday in the DPRK for the calendar year 2011, despite earlier indications that this might be the case (2010-01-06 and 2010-01-07).
