The Mayan Apocalypse is drawing closer, and between Doomsday fears over December 21, 2012 and the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., perpetrated by gunman Adam Lanza, 25 school districts in Michigan have cancelled classes, giving thousands of students an extra-long winter break.

The Mayan Apocalypse 2012, December 21, 2012, has many people throughout the world worried that Doomsday is coming tomorrow. But while there is no evidence that the Mayan Apocalypse is going to come true, fears over the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting by Adam Lanza has caused five districts in Lapeer County and 20 districts in Genesee County to cancel class.

"Given the recent events in Connecticut, there have been numerous rumors circulating in our district, and in neighboring districts, about potential threats of violence against students. Additionally, rumors connected to the Mayan calendar predicted end of the world on Friday have also surfaced," a letter from Matt Wandrie, Superintendent of Lapeer Community Schools said.

The schools that cancelled class over fears of the Mayan Apocalypse and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting received several threats, the Mayan Apocalypse and the December 21, 2012 rumors, the schools decided to cancel class after investigating the threats.

If the context is that they're worried [i]people[/i] freaking out tomorrow could pose a threat, rather than the myth itself, yeah, I can see that.

People do crazy stuff when they believe in crazy stuff.

You really know how to distort a comment, don't you?

Terrorists win when idiots rush to buy more guns.

I'd say you're a maneuvering mass of potential terrorrists. Sheeps of the gun industry.

Great. So instead of judging us on your high horse, cowering away behind your monitor, why not come up here and live? No? Then knock of the stupid trolling.

Smart move, don't need anyone trying to spare the kids from the doomsday.

People be crazy.

Also countdown here, it's supposed to be at 11:11am GMT, so you'll all be asleep while we're dying. At least you would be if anything were to happen, which it won't

So this year they closed one day early to avoid the shooters who where going to do it on the last day, next year, they'll have to close two days early to trick them, the year after, they'll have to close 4 days early, sicne you know,they'll think you'll close 3 days early then. The year after than, oh at least a couple of weeks.
