Netflix wants to help trick your kids on New Year’s Eve

They’ll never see it coming.

Every year, parents of young kids run into the same issue on New Year’s Eve: The idea of staying up until midnight becomes exciting, but the reality means everyone’s tired and cranky the next day. 

Netflix is offering a solution. Whenever your family is ready to count down to 2016, the kids can choose their own countdown hosted by characters from shows like Care Bears & Cousins, Inspector Gadget, and All Hail King Julien. Then just tell them it’s midnight. They’re kids. They won’t know.

All you have to do is search “New Year’s Eve” in the search bar to peruse the options, and you’re free to count down to 2016 literally whenever.
