Countdown to New Year’s with Netflix and a Giveaway!

31st December 2015


Netflix is genius.

Do you have little kids who desperately want to stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year, whereas you’re thinking, “NOPE?” Thanks to Netflix, you can trick them into thinking it’s midnight, at anytime you like tonight!

Netflix is launching six on-demand countdown specials that parents can use to ring in the new year anytime! They can choose when it’s time to say goodnight and the kids choose how to celebrate with their favourite characters including: Puffin Rock, Care Bears & Cousins, Inspector Gadget, King Julien, and favorites from DreamWorks Animation like Mr. Peabody and Sherman and Project Mc2.

Netflix surveyed parents in the US, UK, France, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Italy, Spain, and Mexico recently and found that 55% would love to be able to ring in the New Year with their kids early, using a special countdown. With 95% of Canadian parents spending this special night with their kids, Netflix’s early countdown options are a brilliant idea. I wish I had had this option when my kids were younger. Sadly, they’re too old to trick at this point so I am REALLY looking forward to dealing with exhausted tweens tonight.

Their poll also found these interesting stats about Canadian families and how they’ll be celebrating this New Year’s Eve:

  • More than a third of Canadian parents would use a special New Year’s Eve countdown as a way to get their kids to bed early (34 per cent)
  • 51 per cent of parents feel that having an on-demand New Year’s Eve countdown will allow them to celebrate as a family
  • Over 70 per cent of parents would start their special countdown before 11 p.m., with one in five parents choosing 9 p.m. as the ideal time to ring in those famous 10 seconds (20 per cent)
  • 65 per cent of parents plan to spend time with their significant other after putting their kids to bed before midnight

To ring in the New Year, I’d love to give away a little Netflix love to one lucky winner. Enter below to win a 6-month membership to Netflix Canada!!! This is open to Canadian residents only and will run until January 7, 2016!! GOOD LUCK and a HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR to you and yours!!

    I hope to obtain a career job after my graduation in May. I also am hoping to practice yoga more regularly and stick with it.

    I want to become more patient with myself and others. And not to jump to conclusions too quickly. Working on this for a while now, and I must say getting better at it. Feels good.

    Changing my family environment – to a less hurried/worried/scurried mode. Instead living for the moment with spontaneity and laughter. My husband/son & I deserve it….been an emotional rollercoaster for years…..2016 will be our best year yet.

    The one thing I hope to accomplish in 2016 is to become a better person and the best I can be, through positive thinking, meditation, church going, volunteering, giving back, helping others more, and to live with gratitude.

  5. Angela Mitchell

    I really want to get into a routine where I spend more time outdoors whether it be playing with the kids, getting exercise or gardening.

  6. Jack Davis

    I want to complete our home renos.

    Kitchen is done,
    Two bathrooms done,
    Living room done.

    I have another bathroom,
    And a minor bedroom reno!
