December 21, 2012 Thoughts
Does anyone ever wonder if perhaps the Mayan's just got tired of doing a calender after 2012? If not and some planet is going to collide with Earth, maybe at least the Alien's will be hot and we won't really care much anyway? Did I mention that's my wedding anniversary? I might be a tad upset if I don't get my gift! In all seriousness though, I believe personally this is just another Millenimum type scare and that people need to stop worrying about when we're going to die and enjoy being alive.
If by some chance I'm wrong you can say I told you so December 22, oh wait we won't be alive, scratch that. I'm sure my family will be pretty upset that they didn't get to open their Christmas gifts. If you're going to schedule the end of the world, couldn't you at least do it AFTER the holiday? I mean honestly what were these Mayan people thinking?
To be honest I'm surprised kids all over the world haven't used this as an excuse to open their gifts early. If I was a kid, you can sure bet I'd be playing this one to the hilt. I could have definitely saved a lot of money if they'd have ended the world before Thanksgiving, so thanks for nothing Mayan Folks!
Nasa has said the world is not ending, I mean come on if the space people don't think a planet is about to bump into ours, should we really be worried? And if you're a Christian, the bible plainly tells us that no man will know when the end is coming. So science and religion both agree that December 21,2012 isn't the last day for Earth. Wait, now I am a little worried! Do science and religion ever agree on anything?
I haven't talked to friends in the Wiccan community, but I do remember that December 21st is the Winter Solstice, not sure what that has to do with anything, but thought I'd throw it out there. We made it through the 2000 scare, and can't forget that thing back in ... was it 1996 or 1998 with the comet? I think we'll all make it out just fine, and if we don't, well it was nice knowing you!
For those of us that plan on enjoying the Holiday Season, and not worrying about the end of the world, all my warmest wishes to you and your families! Remember tis the season to give, so I'm asking that you guys remember Toys for Tots, a great organization that helps bring Christmas to those that have so little!
