And the world did not end today.

The world, according to one widely debunked theory, is slated to end today , Dec. 21, 2012. 
Around the world the paranoid have been readying themselves for Doomsday, a date they believe is predicted in an ancient Mayan prophesy.  
The Mayan calendar moves in cycles with the last cycle ending in December 2012. This is often interpreted as "the world will end on 21 December 2012, at 11:11 UTC".
There’s just one problem: no one seems to know at just what time we’re all supposed to meet our "fiery end" 
                                Mayan Apocalypse : December  21st , 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.
Scientists believe that the Earth is overdue for a geomagnetic reversal. However, this can take up to 5,000 years to complete and does not start on any particular date.
Some  people actually believed this Mayan Doomsday prediction that the world  would end to day; to the extent that  they have encamped around a mountain in Bugarach , a tiny French mountain town in the Pyrenees . This mountain we are told , is the bunker for "rescue UFOs, with aliens on board " which have been on standby for  ages , ready to emerge today from the depths of this mountain in Bugarach,  to whisk away  the lucky few who have encamped around the mountain base for over a week now.  
    And thousands of people believed all that.

 Campers waiting for  " rescue  UFOs" from mountain in Bugarach , France.   

Well, well ! What a laugh! Wonders and fables shall never end.
 If the Mayans were so good and authoritative enough to predict the "end of the world" , why couldn't they predict  the end of their own world and their own civilisation before it happened to them?

So much for Doomsday Predictions. 
Of course , this world and all its systems  and its contents will end some day. The end will surely come but  it will be according  to prophecies which are found in the Holy Bible , spoken by  the  Lord  Jesus Christ Himself. Matthew 24:1- 51
 He is THE more authoritative and reliable source of prophesies than the Mayan Calendar   or any  such doomsday prophecies..
Before the End comes , there will be a sequence  of events which will be evident  for every eye to see. One of such events will be the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let no man or group of people  and  their  apocalyptic  prophesies  or calendars deceive you.  
The exact date and time for the fulfilment of the Biblical prophecies about the End  has not and will not be revealed to any  man , woman or child.  Matthew 24:36
Watch , pray and expect it ; for it will surely happen .
At closing time yesterday , my colleagues and  I  joked  about this "doomsday " saga and were like;  "  Oh yeah, maybe this is the last time we will see . How about a big  hug and a huge smacker, to say "Goodbye"? 
 Of course we knew it would not happen and it has not happened .
 Here in London and in other parts of the world , our  world has not ended.

The only "world" that has ended for me and millions of  folks  today is the  " Work World  2012".
Apart for  essential services workers , today is the last working day in 2012 for all civil servants in the UK , and I suppose, in  other parts of the world  . 
So we in our office, like many other workers, are celebrating later tonight at our Office Christmas party.
The celebrations  is massive;  this is the Festive Season  countdown to the C- Day; and the atmosphere of Joy  and Celebration  here is so thick that you can cut it with a knife.
It's the last weekend before the glorious Christmas Day;  and as usual that means a last-minute  frenzied assault by Shoppers on every thing buy-able  in the shops and on line.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  Before Christmas, if your  own "UFOs and aliens  on board " will be jet planes  and their lovely crew to whisk you off to a well-deserved  Christmas and New Year  holiday destinations , do have an unforgettable Christmas. 
Home or abroad , wherever you are,  be sober , be  vigilant , be safe;  for our Adversary , the Devil seeks  whom " to steal , to kill and to destroy ".

For some people , all around London and other UK cities, at the end of each day' s celebrations, the "UFOs and aliens aboard "  they will see coming to their  rescue to take them home are the  "Booze- Bus"  ambulances and their ever -helpful and long-suffering crew.   
                                                     Down and out                                                                                                         
                   A  drunken kiss for  Booze bus rescue crew.                                                         
 Every  day , as usual ,  these ambulances will be standing by at their Bases , waiting  for calls from all over London; for them to go pick up  and  take home binge-drinkers who at the end of their night out , can barely stand up on their feet.
 Depending on the degree of  drunkenness, the  destination  for these "Booze Buses" is either St. Thomas Hospital in London or the home of the drunkards; that is if they can  remember their  home addresses.                                     
This is not  in  the spirit of the Season of Christmas.     
Have a wonderful and glorious Christmas holiday.  
 Ending the day or  night  on  the  "Booze  Bus" : Not the  glorious  way to celebrate the Season.
