I don't know how good your code is, but your heading says HTML and CSS. I don't know why there's JavaScript in your code. Anyway, I may know why, but I just checked the blog so as to see a clock without JS. I was disappointed however.

I think it is not possible without JS or any other Programming Language πŸ˜….
