Feb. 20, 2014 (USA Today) --The ragnar will be röking on Saturday when, according to some, the Viking calendar predicts the end of the world.
Nordic folklore has it that after three freezing winters, when there have been no summers in between, the world will come to an end.
The past two summers have been cold and wet, so declaring that Ragnarök (otherwise known as the Twilight of the Gods) is upon us is a subjective call.
But it's one some folks in York, England, are willing to make. There, the Jorvik Viking Center is holding its annual Viking Festival. And wouldn't you know it, the world's going to end the last day of the festival.
There's even a countdown on its website, so you'll know how much more time there is to pillage and destroy civilization before we all die.
