York's Chocolate Story A-choc-alypse is upon us!
York’s Chocolate Story is welcoming visitors to learn about the Mayan link to chocolate during its ‘A-choc-alypse’
Beckie Senior, marketing manager, said: “We’ve seen a surge in sales in our chocolate shop this week, perhaps because people are buying chocolate in preparation for the world ending. But we also realise this could just be down to Christmas shopping!
“Chocolate has been linked to the Mayans for thousands of years, and our team of talented storytellers will bring to life the ancient rituals on the date when the Mayan’s predict the world will officially end. And if it is indeed ending, what better way to spend your last day than eating chocolate!”
December 21st marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar which predicts there will be a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.
