A Brief History:
Origination: We use countdown so many ways in these days. No matter what day, in this modern world, a countdown could be imminent. Countdowns date back to the beginning of timekeeping. Countdowns in ancient times were primarily initiated through use of the hourglass. Robert Garland investigates ancient origins of the calendar and to the timekeeping systems of the Western world. A countdown is a sequence of backward counting to indicate the time remaining before an event is scheduled to occur. NASA commonly employs the term to a launch of a rocket.

Major Usage of Countdowns: Whether on the job, in the car, or just having a great time, countdowns have become a way of life for most. I know with me, I am always timing filling a bucket of water, so the timer countdown make it possible to walk away and double-task, and have an alarm warn me of the filling bucket. Here are some places it is widely used:

  • Employment
    • Timers
    • Clocking in!
    • Specialized needs
    • Professional sports
    • Olympics, marathons, races, and the like
    • Medical purposes, including therapy
    • Until election day
  • For Fun

    • Watching the clock tick
    • New Year’s Eve
    • Watching a NASA rocket take off
    • Some games require a clock to countdown
    • Astronomical events like an eclipse
    • Not fun, but until tax day!
  • More. . .

Celebrated: Every year on May 21st.
