Add Countdown to your blog or site!

Earlier, we've shared with you how to add Snowflakes to your Blog/Website. Then we shared several Christmas Decorations with you. Now, it's time for a Countdown Timer for your Blog/Website! This Countdown Timer was originally made for Christmas, but we've customized it to make it usable for any purpose. Now you can use it for any event, such as New Year, Christmas, or anything you wish to. The Countdown Timer can only be set into the current year, not the rest. For example, it can be set to anything starting from January 1 to December 31st of an year. Do not set the timer for the next year, such as 2014-15 if you use it in 2013.

  • Full customization
  • No Ads or any external links
  • Easy To Install
  • No images
