It's not the end of the world.
Carl Sagan, the famous astrophysicist, had a show in the 1980's called Cosmos. In it, he described the "cosmic calendar" which put the history of the universe into a 12 month, 365 day, calendar year. On the very first day of the year is the Big Bang. On the last day of the year, December 31st, at 10:15am, the apes appear. Columbus sets sail at 1 second before midnight.
Don't take yourself too seriously. We just passed the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year in the northern hemisphere with 9 or so hours of daylight. Sydney will get over 14 hours today.
And this guy in Suzhou doesn't give a rip.
All is not well and there is plenty to be concerned about, just take the time to consider some of the good in the world at the same time.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year!
