The 'Day of the Sun' is the formal name for the April 15th commemoration of Kim Il Sung's birth. This year, however, the day was not very bright, as there was no special distribution of foods for many North Korean citizens, according to the Daily NK.

The North Korean government usually distributes gifts to the people on this special day, as a way to strengthen the bond between the state and the citizens, and to show the generosity and benevolence of the leaders. Rice, oil, and bottles of alcohol are given to the adults, while children receive cookies and snacks. But it seems that this year only the children got treats.
