We’re anxiously waiting to ring in the New Year. Some of us love a revel with friends over endless bottles of Prosecco, while others prefer a quiet and cozy night in front of the television. Either way, we can all agree that we’re ready for a fresh start. Here is what to watch this New Year’s Eve, so you can plan ahead!
PRO TIP for parents of small children: Avoid the over-exhausted situations and late night melt downs. If you’ve got little ones, you can count down to New Year’s Eve with on demand videos available on Netflix Canada, and get them to bed without missing the fun. The popular year end countdown videos are created with some of the most popular characters including Trollhunters, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, Puffin Rock, Beat Bugs, Word Party as well as new appearances from Pororo, Larva, Ture and the Rainbow Kingdom. and shows so you can create your own countdown New Year’s Eve party ANY TIME and ANY DAY you choose. And do it over and over again! The on demand videos are available through January 31. So brilliant!
Is it New Year’s yet? Who cares! Celebrate anytime!
