Not the End of the World

Obviously, the world did not end on December 21, 2012.  Instead, another complex mathematical cycle of thousands of years passed in the Mayan Calendar. The day was celebrated in the Mayan world, and in the night skies over places such as Antigua, Guatemala, glowing kites majestically soared in the dark air.  The rich heritage of the Mayan civilization has only recently been unlocked, as late 20th century scholars began to understand the sophisticated pictograms that the Mayans used for writing.  (Please see August 11, 3117 BCE for more information on the Mayan Calendar.  Image of the flag of the Mayan Nation, Creative Commons)
