The Chinese seem to be in a panic, preparing for the end of the world. According to what some people believe, the end of the world is said to be ending on the 21st of December.

As a result, the buying of candles is reportedly becoming an epidemic across two counties in the Sichuan province.

The prophecy states that the apocalypse will bring along with it three days of darkness- the Chinese want to be prepared. This sudden panic also has much to do with the sighting of “three suns” in Shanghai- a phenomenon which is believed to only be the arc of solar flares.

“The sun will still rise on December 21. All reactions to the doomsday prophecy show a strong recognition of the crisis of human existence. However, these reactions should be rooted in science,” said an astronomer at the Nanjing Purple Mountain Observatory, Wang Sichao.
