By June 2017, the UNESCO had recognized 39 intangible cultural heritages in China. They included, among many other things, paper cutting, the Dragon Boat festival, Peking opera, and the practice of acupuncture. Unfortunately some traditional cultures are struggling to remain popular among the younger generations, and there are fears that some legends may be lost. Thankfully a number of cultural enthusiasts are stepping into the breach to stop this traditional culture from vanishing and helping to revitalize them among the general public.
