What did people do to count down the New Year before there were time zones?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
before time there wasn't much associated with any reference.. nor was there a zone classification.
there were no countdowns.. time created that.. soon as there was measurement then the counting began.
time zones were created of course due to the sun's position.
remember.. china and a few other places don't celebrate on the same calendar and time as the rest...
their new years is in february.

There have been time zones since the "new world" was discovered. People used clocks just like now, I suppose. If it was before they had clocks, then they were probably nomadic tribes and they were sleeping or protecting the group from attacks.

They just stood around until the preacher started counting down, then they all joined in by the time he got to "8".

Did they even count down? It is actually a silly tradition overall.

Man that is a good question. Hey, what do you think they did before there was Dick Clark? Happy New Year.
