The People’s Republic of China (PRC) has achieved remarkable growth and development since initiating economic reforms in 1979. Sustained growth has fuelled unprecedented poverty reduction, with hundreds of millions of people lifted out of poverty in the past 30 years. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is proud to have contributed to these accomplishments. The PRC has received a total of $22.96 billion in loans assistance since joining the ADB in 1986, making it the second largest ADB borrower and the largest client for private sector financing. This publication commemorates the 25th anniversary of ADB’s operations in the PRC.

See the blazing Yule before us..." This is just one of the many ancient British folk songs we all know and love. Other tunes and symbols that tug on our memories have similar historical roots, hearkening back to a shared Pagan past. These dances, songs, and theatrical plays in the English folk tradition are now little known to most of the modern Pagan community. Reviving these vital traditions can bring new life to Renaissance festivals, neopagan rituals, and community events. Introducing the lively music and homegrown entertainments of times long past, this descriptive how-to is designed for twenty-first-century joviality. The songs, dances, and plays of old are explained in their mythical, seasonal, and historical significance and outlined for easy reenactment.
