According to reports of a recent series of meetings in the North Korean city of Hoeryong, it would appear that, after all, January 8, might be an official public holiday in North Korea.
A calendar recently released by the North Korean government (2010-12-16), did not include January 8, the birthday of Kim Jong-Il's third son and heir apparent, Kim Jong-Un, 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).
