If it does end, what can you do?  I'm not sure I'd even want to be around after the world has ended.  It seems like it'd be a pretty miserable place.
Oh there really isn't a significance to it, it is basically the same thing as going from 1999 to 2000 the clock doesn't run out it just changes over.

The world will end for my best friend sometime this year.  Too soon and too young for my liking.  But life is a terminal condition for all of us whether we think about it or not.   I think Wayne and Garth may of had it right-  "Party on!" I'm just going to celebrate the joy of life with all it's pain and laughs until my clock or the world's clock runs out.
When the world ends won't matter a wit if you are struck down tomorrow.

There is no significance to the date other than the simple fact that it's the Winter Solstice, which is a very common start/end point for calendars throughout history and across many cultures. The idea that the world is going to end on that date because one ancient culture's calendar stops there is as ludicrous as the idea that the world will end on 12-31-10 because that's when my Far Side desk calendar runs out of pages. For most comprehensive analysis this idiocy deserves, please see Steve's prior comment.

  Yes, it seems that every decade or so there is a planetary gloom-and-doom scenario.   I think NASA had a funny answer, "It's another Y2K glitch."
You got the best answer for sure...............I say that cause' I love far side :)                 (and Dilbert)

Pointless idiocy from ignorant louts who don't want to be bothered with taking personal responsibility for their lives or the world around them. 

The worst part is promoting this crap in the mass media, and leading thousands of children to have unsubstantiated terror and nightmares as a result.
Complete twaddle.
