You may have read that this weekend is supposed to mark the coming of Ragnarok, the violent "Viking Apocalypse" prophesied in Old Norse poetry. But the mythical apocalypse that inspired Game of Thrones' long winter isn't actually on the books—and may refer to events that happened centuries ago.
It was just a little over a year ago that we were talking about the Maya non-apocalypse, and now it's the vikings turn to kind of, sort of predict the world's end. Stories are swirling around the Internet that February 22nd marks the "predicted" date of Ragnarok, which will coincide with this weekend's Jorvik Viking Festival. But don't stock up on wolf-repellent just yet; this isn't the end of the world.
