Oxlajuj Baktun

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Oxlajuj Baktun by José Moreno

 

The Oxlajuj Baktun is the longest note in the Mayan calendar, known as the Long Count equals 144,000 days, about 400 years.

As the Gregorian calendar series of years has called decades, decades, etc., the Mayan calendar had 20 years shekels Katún calls, and sets of 20 katun (400 tun = 394.3 years), called baktun, as this calendar on December 21, 2012 is the last day of the thirteenth baktun.

The Maya recorded this date as 13.0.0.0.0, whose values ​​are:

1 = kin (day)
20 = uinal (day)
360 = tun (day)
7200 = katun (day)
144 000 = Baktun (day).

Equals 13 x 144000 = 1872000 days, about 5128.76 years.

Guatemala took place throughout this great Acontecimento from Tikal, Guatemala, Quetzaltenango, Atitlan, etc., and in most places Mayan ceremonies performed.

According to what I know now we are on day 0.

El Oxlajuj Baktun es la cuenta mas larga en el Calendario Maya, conocido como Cuenta Larga equivale a 144 000 días, aproximadamente unos 400 años.

Tal como el calendario Gregoriano cuenta con series de años conocidas como lustros, décadas, etc, el calendario maya contaba con siclos de 20 años llamadas Katún, y series de 20 katunes (400 tun = 394,3 años), llamados baktún, según este calendario el 21 de diciembre de 2012 es el último día del decimotercer baktun.

Los mayas registraron esta fecha como 13.0.0.0.0, cuyos valores son:

1 = kin (día)
20 = uinal (día)
360 = tun (día)
7200 = katún (día)
144 000 = baktún (día).

Es igual a 13 x 144 000 = 1 872 000 días, unos 5128,76 años.

En todo Guatemala se celebró este gran acontecimento desde Tikal, Guatemala, Quetzaltenango, Atitlán, etc, y en la mayoría de lugares realizaron ceremonias mayas.

Según lo que sé ahora estamos en el día 0.

Posadas

Posadas by José Moreno

 

Las Posadas, a celebration held by the Catholic Church, held before Christmas and almost always go from 16 to 24 December, which recreated the journey of the Holy Family from Galilee to Bethlehem.

In Quetzaltenango the same way these traditions are celebrated with lights, whistles and tortoise shells, entering and leaving nine houses there for one night the Holy Family.

Sadly only had my cell phone camera.

Las posadas, una celebración llevada a cabo por la Iglesía Católica, realizada antes de la navidad y van casi siempre del 16 al 24 de diciembre, los cuales recrean al viaje de la Sagrada Familia desde Galilea hasta Belén.

En Quetzaltenango de la misma forma se celebran estas tradiciones con Faroles, pitos y caparazones de tortugas, entrando en nueve casas y dejando alli por una noche la Sagrada Familia.

Lastimosamente solo tenía la cámara de mi celular.
