There are places around the world that have seen a boost in tourism this week thanks to 12/21/12, the day some doomsday prophets believe the world will end, according to a French sect.
BUGARACH, FRANCE - DECEMBER 20: The sun rises over Bugarath, the small village in the foothills of the Pyrenees on December 20, 2012 in Bugarach, France. Miviludes, the French Government's dedicated sect watchdog, are investigating the likelihood of apocalyptic sect activity or ritualised suicides due to the prophecy of an ancient Mayan calendar which also claims that Burgarach is the only place on Earth which will be saved from the apocalypse on the evening of December 21, 2012.
