It’s the last day of 2017! As we reflect on the ups (and downs) of the year, we treasure the memories and lessons we have learned. As a child I remember being so excited for New Year’s Eve. We never attended fancy parties or did anything EXCITING, but the thought of starting a new year, getting to stay up late and watching the ball drop in Time Square was magical. We would get in our jammies, parade around the house with noise makers and fancy hats and eat fun appetizers. Now that I am adult, I enjoy creating new memories with my kids. Our day consists of board games and crafts, followed by meat and chocolate fondue and of course a karaoke dance party.
With kids ranging from 6 to 12, not everyone is able to make it to that magical hour. So that my daughter doesn’t miss the excitement of a the countdown to the New Year we use NETFLIX as our secret weapon. She may think she’s staying up until midnight, little does she know that the magical countdown on Netflix allows her to get to bed at an appropriate hour while still feeling like she is part of the celebration.
Featuring a cast of faces familiar and new, my kids can party with old favourites such as Trollhunters, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, Puffin Rock, Word Party and Beat Bugs, or new appearances from Pororo, Larva, and True and the Rainbow Kingdom. By visiting the special 2018 icon added to the Netflix.com/Kids homepage, we are connected with direct access to all nine countdown videos that allows us to customize when we ring in the New Year! Whether it’s midnight or 9pm, everyone will participate in the excitement as we usher in 2018!

From My family to yours! Have a safe and Happy New Years!!
