The End of Days Has Come and Gone

Posted in: Iowa City Owl
The world has been in an uproar about December 21, 2012, which was assumed by many to be the Mayan prediction for the end of the world, according to readings of the famous Mayan calendar.

The End of the World has come, though, and the world has not ended.



The Mayan people in Mexico celebrated this major change as a new time began for them. They celebrated with festivals to start a new era. The Mayans were celebrating  the end of the Mayan Calendar.



The 13th bak'tun ended recently. This is a period on the Mayan calendar, and the last period listed on what was created. The end of the calendar has been questioned for a very long time, and the idea gradually came about that this would be an apocalypse of some kind.

The recent events all over the world have literally had people terrified that the end of times was coming. The natural disasters, major power losses due to bad weather conditions, and massively tragic events have all had people running for the hills believing December 21 would be the last day of the world's existence.

Many people feared that this was the end of times, but the Mayan people believe it was nothing of the sort.According to an article posted on torontosun.com, this time is not the end of the world, but the end of one phase of the world. It is more of a spiritual end than anything.

And of course, for the Mayan people, every end comes with a new beginning, which gives plenty of reason for celebration.

The Mayan people themselves are celebrating that the world is still turning, and that a new era has begun for everyone, in hopes that it will be a much better one for the people.

Mexico was not the only place celebrating, though. People all over the world - even those unfamiliar with the Mayan faith, have been familiar with this calendar and are giving thanks to the end of one time for the world and beginning of another.
