Some DPRK citizens to receive special 60th anniversary rations

According to Yonhap:

North Koreans received special rations of liquor, cookies, blankets and sports shoes earlier this week in honor of the communist country’s 60th founding anniversary, a mouthpiece for a pro-Pyongyang group in Japan reported Thursday.

“Holiday rations were distributed across the country to mark the 60th anniversary of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” said Choson Sinbo, organ of Chongryon, or the pro-Pyongyang General Association of Korean Residents in Japan. “Concerned bodies had prepared for the distribution well before the holiday to ensure that all households enjoy the day,” it added.

Although the practice of giving out commemorative rations is pretty much a tradition in the DPRK, tastes have changed, and citizens do not hold them in the esteem they once did.
