Happy New Year 2012 - level 3, 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. Nobody knows exactly why the Mayan Calendar ends on this day and people came up with many ideas about what might happen. These are just some of them:

There will be a worldwide flood

The Earth will get hit by a comet or asteroid

There will be a Pole shift

We will end it all in a global nuclear war

There will be an alien invasion on the Earth

There is also some very logical explanation why the Mayan Calendar ends. They just ran out of 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.
