What is special about 12-12-12 and End of the World

121212 concert or Mayan end of world

What is special about 12-12-12 , is this about Sandy benefit concert or  Mayan end of the world or which one is going to happen? This is the most interesting topic around the world now.

Well, 12-12-12 became a curious date as there are many assumptions even including end of the world, but as we know Mayan calender is not ending on this date but rather at December 21, 2012. So this date is nothing to do with end of the world, and even you don’t need to consider as count down date for end of the world. There are two different things to talk about here

1. The Sandy Benefit Concert :

Particularly this date is more pointed towards the one night concert to aid victims of the Sandy hurricane. And it will be broadcasted live at more than 200 Cinemark, Century and Tinseltown movie theaters nationwide. The event details are below.

Location : Madison Square Gardens, New York
Date: 12-12-12, Wednesday
Time:  7:30 p.m. EST,    4:30 p.m. PST

You can watch this live concert online on YouTube as well:

2. A Special Date:

According to the Mayan’s, December 2012 will mark the end of a 5,126-year Mayan Calendar, and is a time of renewal, rebirth, renaissance and new beginnings. But for us  12-12-12 is a specific and interesting date because it is not only the last of the alliteration dates for 100 years.

Interestingly many people trying to make it a memorable date for e.g. many people planned to get married on this date, so you can also do something good to make memorable day of you life.
