Can you believe it’s almost 2016?! Well whether you can grasp that reality or not, it’s coming and Netflix is on top of it. Last year my family and I rang in the new year with King Julian’s New Year’s Eve Countdown and this year it looks like the amazing people at Netflix have a whole array of options for the little ones to choose from!! This year you can celebrate as a family and still have time for a parents-only party with a whole new set of New Year’s Eve countdowns, available today only on Netflix, designed for preschoolers, tweens and everyone in between. You choose when to say goodnight, and kids choose how to celebrate with their favorite characters.
Already dreaming about pressing play on that New Year’s Eve celebration long before the clock strikes twelve? You’re not the only one. According to a recent survey from Netflix, 9 is the new midnight for parents in the U.S., with nearly half of parents (48%) saying they’d ring in the new year by 9 p.m.
● Italian and French parents are getting cozy with their significant others after lights out. Parents in both countries most look forward to spending time with their other half after putting the kids to sleep (51% and 43%, respectively).
● Parents love a good party in Spain and Mexico. 50% of parents in both countries can’t
wait to kick off the parents-only party after tucking in their little ones.
● American parents aren’t afraid to play trickster. 41% of US parents have or plan to use a special New Year’s Eve countdown as a way to get their kids to bed early
● Brazilian parents say it’s all about family time. Nearly two-thirds of parents in Brazil agree the best part about an on-demand countdown is being able to celebrate the holiday as a family (63%).
