Guatemala Mayan Calendar 2012
Mayan priests pray during a ceremony at the Kaminal Juyu archeological site, in preparation for the Oxlajuj B'aktun, in Guatemala City, Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012. The Oxlajuj B'aktun is on Dec. 21, marking a new period in the Mayan calendar, an event only comparable in recent times with the new millennium in 2000. Amid a worldwide frenzy of advertisers and new-agers preparing for a Maya apocalypse, one group is approaching Dec. 21 with calm and equanimity calm: the people whose ancestors supposedly made the prediction in the first place.
