The term “doomsday” is translated from Old English and literally means “the day of judgment.” While its origin and first use are tough to nail down with any accuracy, it is fair to state that it has been used in religious texts and discussions for many centuries. Over the course of time, this idiom’s meaning has changed thanks to its use in society. While it was spoken with reverence at one time, it is now used in a very loose and informal manner. Instead of fearing the end of days when it is spoken, many simply roll their eyes in understanding that whatever it is used to describe will be frustrating and denote the very long and very boring passage of time.
