Baby Emma From Friends Assures Us She’s Finally Woken Up From The ‘Best Nap Of All Time’
Hoepfully some of you decided to see in the new year by watching S10E04 of Friends, cuing it up so that midnight coincided exactly with Chandler telling Emma: "Hi, Emma. It's the year 2020. Are you still enjoying your nap?"
The idea started circulating online after Netflix India suggested it in the run-up to New Year's Eve.
If you start S10E04 of Friends at 11:48 PM on December 31st, you'll begin the year with Chandler saying, "Hi, Emma. It's the year 2020. Are you still enjoying your nap?"

And now Noelle Sheldon - one of the twins who played Emma Geller-Green in the long-running sitcom - is even getting in on the joke, having taken to Instagram to assure us she 'just woke up from the best nap of all time', while wishing everyone a happy new year.
Sharing a Photoshopped picture of herself enjoyed a coffee in Central Perk, Noelle wrote: "Just woke up from the best nap of all time, happy 2020!! (ft. my poorly done photoshop).
"Hope everyone has an excellent year full of family, friends, and laughter!!"
Her twin sister Cali also joined in, commenting: "Finally."

The reference comes from the fourth episode of season 10, aka 'The One with the Cake', in which Ross and Rachel throw their daughter Emma a birthday party and want everyone to be there for it - but the rest of the gang already have plans.
Chandler and Monica want to head off on a romantic weekend, so when they're asked to film a special message to Emma for her 18th birthday, they're less than overjoyed.
Monica follows Chandler's quip with: "We're Aunt Monica and Uncle Chandler, by the way - you may not recognise us because we haven't spoken to your parents in 17 years."
Chandler adds: "We used to be married but then we missed a weekend away together and things kind of unravelled... Because of you."
Noelle and Cali are still acting occasionally, having recently featured in Jordan Peele horror Us.
But they haven't turned their back on their past, often posting Friends throwbacks on Instagram - including one snap that Noelle shared, which was captioned: "The one where Emma got cloned."
In another of Noelle's, they pose next to the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Jennifer Aniston, who played their on-screen mum in the show.
Cali also posted a few behind-the-scenes shots from the programme when it was celebrating its 25th anniversary.
