If you’re feeling stressed about your holiday plans, we completely understand. In-laws? Plane flights? Gift shopping? Oh, and let’s not forget, the Apocalypse will be coming around this year too. Preparation and planning for that notorious guest must be top priority on this holiday season’s to-do list. After all, there are fewer than 10 days remaining.
December 21st is going to be here before you know it. According to several sources, the doomsday possibilities vary. From what we’ve gathered, here are a few of the circumstances you should prepare for:
1. A planetary collision between Planet X, also called Nibiru, and Earth.
2. A catastrophic natural disaster caused by geomagnetic reversal – when the Earth’s magnetic field reverses, causing the South Pole to head north and the North Pole to head south.
3. The Sun unleashing solar flares in Earth’s direction, causing (again) a catastrophic natural disaster.
4. An unusual planetary alignment resulting in a three-day worldwide blackout.
To help tackle these dangerous situations, many have suggested building a shelter and stocking it with food and water supplies. While we agree that shelters are a good option, we have a few more luxurious accommodations options for any of you looking to go all-out as well as be able to ‘remain calm’ during what is looking like a very stressful holiday season. With thousands of breathtaking villas, mansions and castles to choose from, we think the properties below would relax anyone within seconds of arriving – even if those are your last seconds on Earth…
We’ll be here in Boston, hoping for the best. In the meantime, we’re rocking out to this hit from before the last supposed apocalypse and hoping for the best.
