The Aztec calendar is closely related to the Mayan calendar, but the
latter tracks much longer cycles of time.  We hit the end of one such (the
12th "baktun", a period of nearly 400 years) near the winter solstice in
2012.  According to some interpretations this marks the end of the world.
So don't make any big plans for early 2013. :)
