So apparently according to the Mayan Calendar the world is going to end on the 21st of December, which conveniently lands on a Friday, so combining these two reasons I say that makes for one hell of a P-A-R-T-Y excuse! If the world does indeed end you want to make your last hours on earth memorable, the world is a fun place so make the most of it while you can!
- Party Supplies -
You have to be prepared for the worst so we suggest you get yourself loads of water (booze), tinned food, flash lights, batteries and food that won't go off, given the chance you all survive to see the 22nd you will be glad you bulk bought baked beans.
Maybe go for finger food for the evening of the party, it's quick and easy to eat so then you have more time to boogie and of course do all the stuff you want to do before time runs out (wink wink)
- Guest List -
Now you don't really want to invite people you don't like or those annoying kind of people you only invite because you feel bad. So family and friends and people you really wish you saw more off, don't hold out on Brad Pitt RVSP'ing you though, but it is worth a try I guess.
You want a laugh with people who make you remember how good life is, who let you forget that maybe in a few hours the world will blow up. Encourage toasts and group hugs through out the evening, and of course the hokey cokey and silly games such as Charades (always a winner)
- Costume Ideas -
Zombies: The most obvious I guess, I mean you may as well look dead when you become dead?
Superhero: Be your favorite superhero for your last night on earth and maybe you may save the world!
Jesus: Make people pray to you in there last moment and confess all their sins, so if the world doesn't end you can tell everyone their secrets.
Or failing these why not check out our 'End of the World' category for ideas.
- MUSIC -
REM - "It's the end of the world as we know it."
Well this is an obvious first choice.
U2 - "Until the End of the World"
You can't go wrong with a bit of U2 can you? Bono obviously didn't do his best in saving the world, but he sure saved good music.
Pearl Jam -"Alive"
If by half past midnight nothing has happened then you can all belt out this corker "Hey, I, I, oh, I'm still alivvveee!" and still stick it to the man!
Muse - "Supermassive Black Hole"
"Glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars sucked into the 'supermassive'" Muse seem to know something we don't...However, in song form it doesn't sound that bad.
Swedish House Mafia -"Save the World"
You've got to have a bit of a rave if it's your last time, and Swedish House Mafia plan to save the world so join them.
Blondie - "Rapture"
Every wannabe hard girl in the 80's wanted to be her, so if you're an 8o's baby then here is your last chance to be the woman you've always wanted to be before the atomic bomb drops.
Crowded House - "Don't Dream It's Over"
This is a song to play just before midnight, gather all your mates and family and sway to "hey now, hey now! Don't dream it's over" perfect.
Spice Girls - "Spice Up Your Life"
Well, why not? It can't be all doom and gloom these girls will "Take You Where You Gotta Go" and even give advice "Smiling Dancing Everything Is Free. All You Need Is Positivity." GIRL POWER.
Please avoid all emo or country music, no one wants to die to that.
- Location -
For an event of this magnitude, you will want the best possible location. Since no one knows just yet how the world will actually end it is recommended you find a location that will be as safe as possible given all potential circumstance.
So maybe somewhere that is high above ground, so if it floods you can still party till it reaches you and wave to everyone else floating by. Make it one to remember, this is the last party you will throw and you want it to take everyone's breath away, so dust of your disco ball and make it a cracker!
- No Regrets -
Make going out in style your main priority, if that means eating so much cake you feel sick, getting with someone you've always wanted to get with in your last passionate romp or ending in a circle of all your mates singing 'Wonderwall' by Oasis. Whatever you wish to do, do it! And if the world doesn't end then you can always blame everything on the Mayan. It wouldn't have happened had they learned to count.
