All Hail King Julien! Those penguins from Madagascar might be really cute but, as we all know, the real show stealer is King Julien and his trusty sidekicks Mort and Maurice. The penguins might have got a major motion picture, but King Julien has one-upped them by coming right to your home on Netflix. He arrived December 19th with perfect timing. He’s all about the party, right? And it IS the season for fun.
In fact – he’s got perfect timing as we are going to be bringing the celebration, King Julien style, to our friends New Year’s Eve Party, thanks to Netflix. Not only can we watch him, but the kids will get to party right along side him, too, with all the great stuff we have to bring over – along with a tasty recipe and a few things I’ve got up my sleeve (which I hope I have time to create!).
It’s the festive season with Christmas and New Year’s a week apart, and I think that instead of stressing over it, I’m going to kick back with the kids and watch some Netflix. I’m going to absorb some of the fun and playfulness (and maybe even the commanding presence) of King Julien and enjoy this time of the year. I might not be able to do all things I want to, but I sure can get into the spirit of things! I’ll shrug off anything negative (like King Julien does so well), get a little ‘me’-centric, pull my trusty little sidekicks together (I have two as well) and make some fun.
I’ll share pictures of the kid’s at the party so you can all see how it went – as well as the treats we are hoping to make. They may not make it to midnight but they’ll be partying all the same! And they’ve got the energy of that royal lemur, so it should be fun to watch.
Set aside some time to watch the show with your kids – the timing couldn’t be better as there is a Penguins of Madagascar movie in the theatres, too, so you can bring the fun into your home with the notably absent (or so my boys tell me) King Julien as he so justly deserves! Netflix makes it easy – a click of a button and voila! instant showtime! And if you can’t get enough Madagascar awesomeness – check out their holiday specials.
Don’t forget to check out all the fun holiday programing they have, or search for a new favourite series for yourself to start your New Year off with, too. It’s affordable, easy and well, probably the best thing we ever signed up for. And if you are still stumped for Christmas gifts – why not put a subscription to Netflix under your tree? If you have a smart tv or video game console you’re already half way there – or wrap up a Roku for the whole family.
