Ragnarok 2014 countdown

We’re just mere hours away from the start of Ragnarok, the Viking Apocalypse, a series of events, natural disasters, and battles that lead to the end of the world. The wolf Fenrir, Loki’s son, will also break out of his prison and there will be an epic battle fought by Norse gods like Odin, Thor, Loki, Týr, Freyr, and Heimdallr. The Earth will split open and the beings of the underworld will be unleashed.

In Norse mythology, most of the major gods die in the final battle, and those who do survive will see the world begin anew and become repopulated.

In honor of this impending cataclysm, thousands of Viking warriors and spectators are descending upon the city of York in the United Kingdom for the Jorvik Viking Festival.

The event’s website has been counting down to Ragnarok, which they state begins on February 22, 2014. The festival’s events will included live combat workshops for families, a grand Viking dinner, Viking strongman competition, a dramatic candle-lit performance of Beowulf, and much much more, which will be great if you actually survive this apocalypse. I’m guessing the folks behind this annual festival aren’t too worried about the end of days, since they’ve scheduled events for February 23, 2014.

For Ragnarok, I’ll be listening to Manowar, drinking mead, polishing my sword, reading American Gods, and, of course, watching Thor. How will you spend your final moments?
