I have 4 young children and one of the hardest parts of New Year's Eve is that as you get closer to midnight the kids get closer to becoming demons.

You see they know something exciting is happening at midnight so they want to stay up. The problem is that sleep deprived children are horrible. They cry, scream, fight, and melt down. So Netflix has the answer.

Lie to your kids and do the countdown whenever is convenient for you.

Netflix is offering an on-demand countdown that you can play whenever you want, and it's aimed at children. The countdown features characters from the new Netflix children’s show “All Hail King Julien” (which my kids love!). The main character, King Julien will host the 3 minute show.
