The Mayans predicted that the world would experience a drastic event starting December 21, 2012, and this issue has been making headlines for quite some time now. According to general predictions, we might expect complete global destruction, or the Second Coming and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius to start on this date. Before discussing the number arrangements for that day, which is rather remarkable to say the least, I would like to mention a few other things. Due to the almost total destruction at the hands of the Spanish of all written materials produced by the Mayans, we can't pinpoint what the Mayans actually expected to happen on this date, we can only expect that it is big -- as in really, really BIG. It could be good or it could be bad. We have, of course, plenty of doomsday naysayers, as there have been many of them throughout the ages.

Your article about the significance of the date 12-21-2012, should also include references to these following sequences that I observed.
12+21+20+12 = 11
The Mayan prophecy to do with 2012 was that it would signal the return of “The Nine”.
“The Nine” are mentioned in an inscription on Monument 6 of the Mayan site of Tortuguero, in the Mexican state of Tabasco. The monument was erected in 669 AD and is one of the very few pre-Conquest sources that mention 2012. Various translations or partial translations of the inscription exist. This is the most common one: “At the next creation, the Bolon Yokte Ku, or Nine Support Gods, will return.” However, the actual word “return”, sometimes translated as “descent”, is not intact on the monument. Still, it is a safe conclusion to make that the missing word is return. Why? Because other Mayan sources reference the return of these deities at the ending of each baktun. Hence, they are expected to emanate on Earth in 2012 too.
Nine is considered a feminine number by many because of the nine months a child is in the womb before birth.
The Muslims the Holy month of Ramadan is the Ninth month of the year.
Nine arms of the Hanukkah candelabra.
In Catholicism, novenas are nine days of prayer.
There were nine doors to the holiest part of the temple in Jerusalem.
In Judaism, The Nine Days are the first nine days in the month of Av, a time of intense mourning commemorating the destruction of the first and second temples in Jerusalem.
Nine-storied pagodas are commonly seen throughout the world.
Norse Mythology is filled with the symbology of nine. Perhaps most notably, when Odin sacrificed himself to himself, he hung upside down upon Yggdrasil, the World Tree that holds together earth, heaven and hell by its roots and branches, for nine days and nine nights and in return received the gift of the runes.
Yggdrasil supports nine worlds. Note: The Maya held belief is that our galactic center is also the tree of life.
In Viking mythology the Cosmos was described as being composed by Nine worlds.
The Bahá’í faith consider nine a “number of perfection” and sacred.
And of course, Mayan mythology – Nine “gods” of the Nine Underworlds
According to ancient Mayan belief, the Cosmos consists of Nine Underworlds or levels of development and end on a specific date. So important to their cosmological constructs that this powerful number was expressed in their most significant monument construction- pyramids. The nine tiers or platforms are seen in the photo of the Plumed Serpent Pyramid in Chichen-Itza, the Pyramid of the Jaguar in Tikal, and temple inscriptions in Palenque that refer to this special 2012 date being associated with the end of the Mayan Long-Count Calendar. All these pyramids were built with nine different levels signifying some great importance.
