                width: inherit;
                margin-top: 10px;
                color: #5C5757;
                text-align: center;
                content: "Days";
                content: "Minutes";
                content: "Hours";
                content: "Seconds";

basically what im trying to do is the last hour change the background-image: ./images/clock_bag.PNG; so it will be a red image
Any help would be appreciated
Thank you .

Hello Tko,

when you call countdown('08/26/2016 09:07:13 PM', callback);, 'callback' is not defined.

I made an fiddle if an example based on your code, except the css.

I think it's what you want: https://jsfiddle.net/alemonteiro/s0wwkLfp/1/

Yes !!
that worked great thank you so much AleMonteiro

AleMonteiro as i really do appreciate your reply i did notice that with my code when i update the day/time a simple reload of the page will reset the time/day as with yours i need to refresh the page (f5) for it to reset the time/day. Is there a way i could get it to reset on reload of page, again Thank you so much for your time

Sorry for the late response... but to keep the data on page reload you'd have to use cookies to store it.
