The Mayan Apocalypse: Party like it’s the end of the world

Amid a worldwide frenzy of new-agers preparing for an apocalypse, Mayans are approaching Dec. 21 with calm and …

Tomorrow signals the end of the world as we know it, and for those of us who feel fine, it seems like a good time to celebrate.

While the anxious among us are busy squirreling away supplies and building pods of steel, the others are planning parties.

In Calgary, people can settle their apocalyptic fears at the End of the World Cuddle Party. Get cozy with strangers to build up stores of human contact for when you're the sole survivor of a world ravaged by a planetary impact.

For a less touchy-feely death, head to one of several bars in your local area that are no doubt hosting themed parties to go out in style. Unofficial events, such as a party in a remote area called the Tree Flats in Kamloops, B.C., could make for an exhilarating evening as revelers wait to see what comes first — the apocalypse or the police. More than 14,000 people have said they are going on the Facebook event.


More End of the World:
Across the ocean, partiers are already gathering at Stonehenge to witness the end of history. A company that hosts a dinner called  The Last Supper Club invites guests to have their last meal inside an ark. Yet another end-of-the-world dinner in England  includes staff dressed up as Greek gods to give massages and feed guests grapes.

"As with all apocalypses, it ends with a massive glitter cannon and a huge sing-a-long," one of the organizers told the Independent.

Wherever you're headed, be sure to order the Quebec brew La Fin du Monde and dance like it's your last day on Earth.
