TimeAndDate Countdown Widget

TimeAndDate has been around for decades, serving up the most important, you guessed it, times and dates for holidays, events, sunset times, and more. They also have a free countdown timer generator to add to your Notion page! It’s super customizable with several different appearance options from the size, to fonts, colors, background images, and more. The main caveat of this widget is that it’s not ultra responsive to different widget sizes, and it has a bit of a dated appearance. However, with some tweaking and fine tuning, you might just be able to get your desired look!

When you’ve created your desired look, click ‘Show HTML for Countdown Timer’ button, then copy and paste the full code into an ‘/embed’ block on your Notion page.
