21st December 2012 – The Maya Calendar
Why is this date mentioned in regard to the Maya calendar? It has been suggested that the ancient Maya predicted that the world would end on this date. This is not true though, 21 December 2012 was only the end of a cycle for the Maya and a new one would begin the next day, much like our New Year’s Eve or end of the millennium.
