The media plays a huge role here, whipping up a frenzy of speculation. Though mostly tongue-in-cheek, it is enough to influence many gullible and/or vulnerable people. Various threats are debated: from a polar reversal of the Earth, to a global computer crash, runaway climate disaster or other cataclysm. On some talk shows, even the second coming of Christ is predicted. There are numerous hoaxes on the Internet and elsewhere, creating further confusion and paranoia during this time. Some people engage in panic buying of food, or build shutters and barricades around their homes. Others spend their entire life savings to enjoy one "last day" before the end of the world.

A small minority of people become involved in more serious activity. For these troubled individuals, it becomes almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. In their misguided belief that the world will actually end, they resort to extreme or illegal behaviour, putting themselves and others at risk. Consequently, there is a brief spike in the number of murders, rapes, accidents and suicides worldwide.

Of course, for the vast majority of rational people, the date passes without incident - and life continues as normal on 22nd December.
I think this sums it up nicely.

There is very little consensus among classical Mayan sources about dec. 21st 2012 havin any kind of significance whatsoever

I remember when my jehovah witness friend in high school told me about the world ending in 1994, and that a mere 144,000 thousand out of the billions of people that have lived on the planet at any time were destined for greatness.
