A man plays an ancient Mayan ball game during a ceremony to celebrate the end of one Mayan cycle and the start of a new one, in Copan Ruinas, 400 kms northeast of Tegucigalpa, early on December 22, 2012. A global day of lighthearted doom-themed celebration and superstitious scare-mongering culminated on December 21 at the temples of the Mayan people, whose calendar sparked fears of apocalypse. December 21 marked the end of an era that lasted 5,200 years, according to the Mayan 'Long Count' calendar. AFP PHOTO / Orlando SIERRA (Photo credit should read ORLANDO SIERRA/AFP/Getty Images)
