The North Korean state fosters the holiday by providing extra food to its citizens.
Director of Jilin University's Institute of Northeast Asian Studies Guo Rui said that Trump's domestic troubles should prevent him taking such action, while North Korea doesn't appear to be on a war footing.
"North Korea is a problem", Trump said at the White House. Military analysts say the missiles could one day be capable of hitting targets as far as the continental United States, although the North has yet to flight test them.
The statement emphasized that any encroachment of North Korea's dignity or sovereignty by provocative actions by the United States would be mercilessly foiled with "Korean-style toughest counteraction".
It did not elaborate, but previous warnings have included threats to attack Seoul and US military bases in South Korea, the Pacific and even the mainland United States.
South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported in January, citing military officials, that North Korea had probably built two ICBMs that were less than 50 feet long.
Trump said on Thursday North Korea was a problem that "will be taken care of" and he believed Chinese President Xi Jinping would "work very hard" to help resolve it.
"It certainly appears to be a message to the United States that they're capable of threatening the USA homeland".
China's foreign ministry on Friday described the current situation on the Korean Peninsula as "complex and sensitive".
China's Global Times newspaper, which is published by the People's Daily, the Communist Party's official paper, said North Korea must have felt the shockwave from the 11-ton "mother of all bombs" dropped by USA forces on Islamic State-linked fighters in Afghanistan on Thursday. "All the similar acts are irresponsible and also are risky", spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters in Beijing.
A USA military official said the U.S. does not intend to use military force against North Korea in response to either a nuclear test or a missile launch.

There's a good chance that Kyle Quincey will be a healthy scratch again in Game 2. Penguins' Bryan Rust skates against the Calgary Flames in Pittsburgh in February.
China, North Korea's sole major ally and neighbour which nevertheless opposes its weapons programme, on Friday again called for talks to defuse the crisis.
USA officials said on Friday that Trump's advisers weighed a range of ideas for how to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program.
"Though analysts questioned what was inside the missile shells, they said the appearance of a submarine-launched ballistic missile shows North Korea is progressing with its plan to launch missiles from anywhere in the sea".
Choe Ryong Hae said President Donald Trump was guilty of "creating a war situation" on the Korean Peninsula by dispatching USA forces to the region.
North Korean troops parade in Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on Saturday, the birthday Kim Il-sung, grandfather of leader Kim Jong-un.
An unidentified rocket is displayed during a military parade marking the 105th anniversary of the birth of late North Korean leader Kim Il-Sung in Pyongyang on April 15, 2017.
It comes as China and the U.S. ramp up their military presence around North Korea amid fears a showdown with Pyongyang is imminent.
One of the biggest surprises of Saturday's military parade in Pyongyang was two mobile canisters that could contain ICBMs larger than anything North Korea has ever produced. That, in turn, has reduced USA defense officials' options about how to respond to the North Korean threat, Pompeo added during remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
In Pyongyang, retired soldier Ho Song Chol told Reuters that North Korea would win should there be any conflict with the United States.
Discussion this week about possible US military action against the North has referred to the cruise missile strike against a Syrian airbase that Trump ordered last week, and the mammoth single bomb airstrike an American warplane carried out Thursday against an Islamic State bunker complex in northeastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border.
