North Korea celebrated their biggest holiday over the weekend
nstead citizens celebrated with flower festivals, concerts and cookie sculpture shows.
People brought flowers to the monuments of current dictator Kim Jong-un’s grandfather and father.
North Koreans took turns laying flowers before getting into formation to bow at the bronze statues.
The festival of flowers is called The Kimilsungia, which is a specially bred species of orchid named after Kim Il Sung.
Specialists and chefs from across the country created sweet sculptures.
North Koreans are taught from an early age to adore their leaders s portraits of the two rulers can be found in every home, school and workplace in the country.
Many people also go to visit Mangyongdae, which is the birthplace of Kim Il Sung.
Celebrations continued throughout the weekend as Kim Jong-un met Chinese senior diplomat Song Tao and watched a dance group as the two countries renewed closer ties following the supreme leader’s surprise visit to his ally last month.
Citizens commorated their founding leader
North Korea and the US are supposedly meeting in May or early June to hopefully discuss the end of the dictatorship’s nuclear weapons program.
Last week Donald Trump thanked China for its help in trying to resolve the crisis over North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons capable of hitting the United States.
Mr Trump said: ”They’ve been really terrific at helping us get to some kind of settlement.
“Meetings are being set up right now between myself and Kim Jong Un. I think it will be terrific.
“I think we’ll go in with a lot of respect and we’ll see what happens”
It was feared the leader of the hermit state would use their biggest holiday launch another rocket or missile test as attention has been diverted to Syria.
Last year The Day of the Sun was make with a military parade.
Kim used the parade to show off hundreds of missiles, including an intercontinental rocket.
North Korea is still technically at war with the South after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce but not a treaty.
