Happy New B'ak'tun! by ev on 23 December 2012 10:18am
A B'ak'tun is a 5,125 year-cycle in the Mayan long-count calendar. You know, the cycle which just ended on Dec. 21st.. apparently for the Mayans the end of such cycles was a cause for celebration, rather than some kind of foreboding sign.

So, Happy New B'ak'tun, and may the next 5,125 years bring you much success, joy and happiness!

Nice sentiment but l have to ask...why is everyone going so gaga over the Mayan calendar?
Ask most people how much they know about the Mayans and it won't be much but this headline news.
Stop it...this is getting much too silly!

Have to agree Kazzzz, far too much is placed on this nonsense, glad you said it first. Calenders are just slow-time stopwatches... go with the here and now.
