Judgment Day May 21 – 21 Things to Do with Your Family Before the End of the World

By Sunny Chanel |

It's the end of the world, as we know it (and I feel fine)Hey, did you hear the world is going to end on May 21st, 2011? If this is true, there is one thing for sure –  with so little time left in this mortal coil, it is time to get busy.  All those things you’ve been putting off (and I’m not talking about purging your underwear drawer), now is the time to do them. And who should you be doing these end of day activities with? Who should you be spending those last days, last hours and last minutes with? Why those people you brought into the world in the first place – your kids.  May I present to you 21 ones things to do with your kids before May 21 aka Doomsday.

Now, do not get me wrong. I am not condoning doing all the things on this list. But even if the world doesn’t end on May 21st (which it won’t), it’s worth doing some of them anyways, regardless of the coming of apocalypse (especially number 2, 4, 8, and 21).

1. Go see a landmark you’ve always wanted the family to see and just haven’t from Yellowstone to Disney World.

2. Go get a hot fudge sundae after dinner. Hell, have one after lunch and breakfast, too.

3. Let them eat a Big Mac, Whooper or a Double Double Animal Style – some fast food staple you’ve banned until now.

4. As a family, sit and sift through all your photo albums, reflect on the life you’ve all lived.

5. Go on a road trip. Take back roads and get totally lost.

6. Let the kids go to sleep when ever they want.  Throw away your alarm clock while you are at it.

7. Drink all your best wine. Let your kids be your designated driver, so what if they don’t actually have a license.

8. Go visit grandma, grandpa or uncle George. Be nice. And bring that wine.

9. Eat whatever the kids want to for dinner or let them pick the restaurant.  In other word, eat Mac & Cheese and dine at Chuck E. Cheese’s.

10. Play numerous rounds of Candyland, Connect Four, or Uno. Let them win.

11. Give in and let them listen to Kesha.

12. Throw away the chore list. See how messy and dirty you can make the house.

13. Take their home work and turn it into paper airplanes, see how far you can make them go.

14. Watch those family videos that you’ve probably never watched since you shot them.

15. Fly to a Paris, Egypt or Bali. Spend the end of days there .

16. Spongebob Squarepants marathon.

17. Call in sick to work and school. Actually, since the world is actually going to “end”,  don’t call at all. No, “I think I have strep throat” excuses for you.

18. Take out a couple hundred bucks out of bank, hand it off to the kids and let them go crazy in your local candy store. Tell them they’ll never have to see a dentist ever again.

19. Get them a puppy.

20. Make Friday your own personal Halloween. Dress up the family in costume and go trick or treating.

21. Tell them all you love them.

    Don’t worry, it’s not actually the end of the world until October sometime. The 21st is just the rapture. You’ve got a couple of months and the lines at Disney won’t be nearly so long!

  2. Rev. Daniel W. Blair says:

    I am very sad for those who have been following this lie that the rapture will occur on May 21st. Even if they attempt to explain away “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mark 13:32), they cannot explain away that most every Christian, theologian, scholar, and prophet from the first Century until the Nineteenth Century all believed that the church would go through the Great Tribulation and not escape through some secret rapture that would leave the world paralyzed. I pray that they will take a moment and read my book, “Final Warning” because the hour of is His judgment has come.

  3. Libby says:

    Or, you can do what you always do because the rapture is a bunch of malarkey!

    This crap is so scary I don’t know what to freaking believe!!!!!!!!! Someone please give me something positive please lol and any ways god said we wouldnt know a date

  5. Lightshines says:

    Harold Camping may have predicted that rapture will take place on May 21, 2011 and i don’t think i agree with him. One that that is certain is that judgement day will surely come one day. The time and hour , no one knows. But it brings one thing to the fore, which our readiness to face the judgement day. ARE YOU READY?

  6. bettywu says:

    oh. my. I was being sarcastic. I’m sad for those who have been duped into quitting their jobs and throwing away their life savings.

  7. ChiLaura says:

    LOL, BettyWu!
