Shopping News: Thousands of people across the UK are hoping the Mayan prediction that the world will end on Friday is right, so they won’t have to do any Christmas shopping.

For many, the apocalyptic end of the earth and death of all humanity is a more welcoming prospect than braving crowded high streets for last minute Christmas shopping this weekend.

“It’s not like I’m suicidal and want to die,” said one shopper. “It’s just I’d rather not spend hours queuing at the shops this weekend. In that respect, death by Mayan doomsday seems like a much better option.

“Ever since I first heard about the Mayan apocalypse on December the 21st I’ve had it marked on my calendar,” said another shopper.

“Normally by this time of the year I’d be stressed out thinking about what presents I have to buy. But not this year – this year, all I want for Christmas is for the Mayans to be right.”
