North Korea New Year
A North Korean family has their photo taken in front of fireworks as they celebrate the new year on Tuesday Jan. 1, 2013. North Koreans celebrated the arrival of the new year, marked as “Juche 102” on North Korean calendars. “Juche” means “self reliance,” the North Korean ideology of independence promoted by North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, and modern-day North Korean calendars start with the year of his birth in 1912.
