2012 Mayan Calendar Holidays by DJ Cline
I am told the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world this year. If I had a calendar predicting the end of the world, I would trade it in for something with kittens on it. I’m pretty sure that a year from now we will see the end of the year and not the end of the world. In case I am wrong, this an attempt to clear up confusion about the holidays over the next year.
