It's that time of year again when we (attempt to) take a brief holiday respot from the North Korea policy world. We will be taking a break from the blog from December 25 - January 1.

This is, of course, unless Pyongyang offers some end-of-the-year excitement as has happened in the last few years (2014: The Sony Hack, 2013: Jang Song Thaek's execution). As much as we enjoy staying on top of the latest drama, we'd be more than happy to bear witness to a peaceful, if uneventful, yule tide throughout the Korean Peninsula.

To our friends in the US, Korea, and around the world, Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and we look forward to bringing you more North Korea analysis in 2016!
