The one place in the world that will have a significant decline in Christmas cheer will be the one and only North Korea. Kim Jong Un has taken further steps by prohibiting gatherings that involve singing, alcohol, and group caroling.

The reason for these prohibitions is to try and stop dissent as the UN sanctions continue to take hold in the hermit country. The country bans religious worship except worship of the founding family of the nation.

Kim banned the few practicing Christians in the country from celebrating Christmas and shifted them to celebrate his grandmother, Kim Jong-Suk, who was born on Christmas Eve.

The country is known for cracking down on religious celebrations, Mother’s Day Messages, and have even cancelled national beer festivals.
