Netflix helps you ring in the new year with your kids
New Year's Eve is just around the corner, and if you're not up for partying until midnight with your kids (or at all), Netflix is offering a great way to celebrate the new year with your family without losing your sanity.
As in seasons past, Netflix has unveiled a collection of on-demand New Year's Eve countdowns. Queue up a countdown for as early as you want, and ring in the "new year." Then you can crash immediately afterward or stay up and play dirty card games all night with your grown-up friends.
On the other hand, you might be the adventurous type who doesn't mind their kids staying up until midnight. You can watch a Netflix countdown at midnight! Your kids are sure to be more entertained by characters they know and love counting down with them.
If you're feeling extra-celebratory, you can play the entire roster of on-demand countdowns on repeat to keep the party going all night long.
You and your kids will have plenty to choose from — characters from a ton of different shows are on hand to help your kids ring in the new year. This year's options include characters from Word Party, Puffin Rock, Luna Petunia, Beat Bugs, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, Trollhunters, Project Mc2, Fuller House and Chasing Cameron.
