According to the Associated Press:

North Korea has given “gifts of love” to all its children ahead of leader Kim Jong Il’s birthday.

The North’s official Korean Central News Agency reported on the gifts Saturday without further elaboration. Defectors have said cookies and candies were given to children for past holidays.

Kim’s birthday and that of his late father, Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s founder, are the nation’s biggest holidays. Kim turns 68 on Tuesday.
