Happy festive day!

25 12 2012

I thought it may be nice to have a ‘festive’ post.

This is one of my favourites.

For genuine information about the Mayan Calendar system, check out Wiki (of course) … or any other reputed source of academic information.

The calendars themselves are quite beautiful.
