The North Korean government has issued a decree re-establishing April 25, the anniversary date of the founding of the North Korean People's Revolutionary Army (KPRA) as an annual non-working public holiday in north Korea.

The aforementioned announcement ("In order to significantly celebrate the day of the founding of the KPRA, April 25 of each year has been instituted as a national holiday") comes too late to amend the list of 2020 public holidays in North Korea (2019-12-22), but marks a return to a holiday that had been observed in past years (2018-12-08, 2017-11-28, 2016-11-07, 2015-12-08, 2014-12-12, 2014-11-29, 2013-12-31, 2013-09-23, 2012-12-11, 2011-03-03, 2010-12-16, 2010-12-02, 2009-12-06).
