Christmas in North Korea

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea commonly called North Korea is a country in East Asia, in the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. Its capital is Pyongyang, the country’s largest city by both land area and population.

The Amnok River and the Tumen River form the international border between North Korea and China. A small section of the Tumen River also lies along the border between North Korea and Russia, technically following the river’s thalweg. The Korean Demilitarized Zone forms the boundary between North Korea and South Korea.

Christmas in North Korea :

When it comes to Christmas celebration North Korea is the only country in the world where the Cold War is not yet over, and one of the few countries in which it is not permitted to celebrate Christmas at all. No bright lights, no Christmas dinner and not even a Christmas Eve service for the followers of Jesus Christ in North Korea. Christmas is just like any other day of the year. The city is largely shrouded in darkness.

But here Christmas is mainly celebrated in the heart of the Christian. Christians find ways to celebrate Christmas. There is an active underground Church which celebrates the birth of Christ in their hearts. Christmas, too, is celebrated in this way. There are no Christmas services for believers in North Korea, but a meeting with another Christian.

Happy/Merry Christmas in Korean isĀ ‘Sung Tan Chuk Ha’.

Wishing all readers Merry Christmas 2019 & Happy New Year 2020 !!!
