The Mayan Calendar has been making more and more headlines as 2012 approaches–the year some say will be our last. December 21, 2012 is the last day in the Maya Long Count calendar cycle, and scores of authors, mystics and hobbyists have predicted this day spells doom for the planet. This might leave many of us wondering: should be be partying like it’s 2012?
Journalists like Lawrence Joseph—author of Apocalypse 2012—predict catastrophe based on unique astronomical events expected in 2012. The winter solstice will bring about an alignment of the planet with the center of the galaxy for the first time in over 25,000 years. “Whatever energy typically streams to Earth from the center of the Milky Way will indeed be disrupted on 12/21/12 at 11:11 p.m. Universal Time,” Joseph writes.
Whether or not 2012 will be the last Spring Break ever, one thing is for certain: Spring Break 2012 in Daytona Beach is going to be a party to end all parties.
