Happy New Year 2012 - level 2, A12

02-01-2012 23:00

This year will be very special. A lot of people believe that something interesting will happen at the end of 2012 because the Mayan Calendar ends on 21st December 2012. People don’t know why the Mayan Calendar ends on this day and people have many different ideas why it ends. These are some of those ideas:

There world will be under water

A comet or asteroid will hit the Earth

The Poles will change position

Aliens will come to the Earth

There is also some very logical explanation why the Mayan Calendar ends. They just didn’t have more space on the calendar.

We wish you all the best this year. Enjoy your time every single day. It can be the best year of your life.
