I personally don't think it will be anything more than when the Y2K hype was afoot. The next day people were more or less like "cool the power is still on and computers still work".
So on December 22 people will most likely have a similar sentiment "cool the world didn't end think I'll go to Starbucks then come home and play some PlayStation" ...or XBox to keep it fair...or Wii...until the next fortold cataclysmic event that becomes a fad.
If I'm wrong no one will be here to say "I told you so"...so either way...good times.

I am so glad the world is going to end, I will save tons on Christmas presents!
Seriously how many people are going to have to rush out on the 23rd and cover Christmas? Most likely they will have to run into their shelters and break out some chocolate for the wife and kids....

I'm personally going to be spending the day with my S.O., just in case. You just never know when all the doom-porn lovers are going to be right. I just hope it doesn't happen. I saw the trailer for Iron Man 3 today, and I want to be around long enough to see it!
In either case, the next day I'll probably be nursing a bad hangover while eating a very greasy breakfast consisting mostly of bacon.
As far as the rest of the world?
There will probably be some kool-aid drinkers out there, there will be some people who will be in their bunkers the night before the 21st, and yet others will continue on like nothing is going on.
My bet is that nothing is going to happen....but then again, you never know.
