With all the preparation for Thanksgiving and the holidays on the way, I almost forgot about that ominous prediction made by the Mayan Calendar. Remember? We heard toward the end of last year how that on December 21, 2012, the world as we know it would come to an end. But, before you go out and by a new Jaguar or a plan a month-long Hawaiian vacation on your credit card, read this.

According to timeandate.com :

"The Mayan calendar finishes one of its great cycles in December 2012, which has fueled countless theories about the end of the world on December 21, 2012 .

One theory suggests a galactic alignment which would create chaos on Earth because of the gravitational effect between the Sun and the Black hole called Sagittarius A, which is located at the center of our galaxy.

Another theory involves a 'polar shift', which means a reversal of the north and south magnetic poles.

NASA scientists have been thoroughly studying and analyzing the possibility of the Earth ending in 2012, but concludes that 21st December 2012 it will be nothing more than a normal December solstice.

There is simply no scientific evidence to support any claims of an apocalypse on Earth in December 2012."
