What is happening on December 21 2020? The world is about to change a lot, according to some conspiracy theorists.

Today, December 21st is a big day, four days until Christmas, the second day of Tier 2, and…the day the world will end, apparently.

Conspiracy theorists online have noticed a few different events set to happen on this date, and have since speculated about what they mean.

What is happening on December 21 2020?

Beyond wild conspiracy theories, one thing that’s set to happen on December 21st Is the Great Conjunction. For the first time since March 4th, 1226, Jupiter and Saturn will come so close they’ll form a “double planet” phenomenon in the night sky.

Jupiter and Saturn have been gradually closing in on each other over the last few months, but on December 21st, they will appear like one bright star. Some are dubbing it the “Christmas Star” or the “Star of Bethlehem”.

Winter solstice is today

On December 21st, Winter Solstice is also occurring in the Northern hemisphere. It’s the one day of the year that the Earth’s pole is at a maximum tilt away from the sun.

This means today the sun travels the shortest path through the sky, meaning it has the least amount of daylight of the whole year.

Of course, this happens every year, but theorists are slightly spooked by the other events it falls coincidently with on December 21st, 2020.

Remember when the world was meant to end in 2012?

Well, it seems the wild conspiracy is back again as people believe the 2012 world ending was simply calculated wrong. Pastor Paul Begel announced in a YouTube video that the world is set to end on December 21st 2020.

The Mayan calendar previously ended on December 21st, 2012, but he now believes it was calculated wrong and instead ends in 2020.

He said:

“December 21, 2020, during the great conjunction when Jupiter and Saturn come within 0.1 degrees of one another and create the brightest star in the skies since the star of Bethlehem. So this is so rare and it’s going to be on the winter solstice. It’s going to be on December 21, 2020. The Mayans are now reorganising and saying this could certainly be the end of the world as we know it.”

However, he has since doubled down on the exact date prediction, reportedly saying that only God can know that.

“The end is near, I’m just gonna tell you right now, the end is near. Now, well, people wanna know what day, what hour, what year?”

“The Bible says no man knows the day nor the hour, no. Not the angels in Heaven, not the son of God, but the Father only. We know this in Matthew 24.”
