Staying up until midnight to ring in the new year can be a challenge for kids (and most parents). I have a 5-year-old boy and a 3-years-old girl and they are usually tuckered out by 8:30pm. There's no way they could make it to midnight Thankfully, Netflix gives us the power to change the time and lets us celebrate the New Year around their normal bedtime.

Netflix's New Year's Eve Countdown is back and allows you to countdown to the new year with some of your child's favorite characters at whatever time makes sense for your family. The specials are easy to find - just look for the Countdowns tab on the Netflix menu to watch.
