FILE - In this March 10, 2008 file photo, people watch as Mayan indian priests participate in a ceremony while one holds up a crystal skull at the Mayan ruins of Palenque, Mexico. There is a legend that the ancient Maya possessed 13 crystal skulls which, when united, hold the power of saving the Earth. Only a year is left before Dec. 21, 2012, when some believe the Maya predicted the end of the world. While some doomsday theorists may suggest putting together survival kits, people in southeastern Mexico, the heart of Maya territory, plan to throw a yearlong celebration. And to make a profit while they party. (AP Photo/Alexandre Meneghini)
