According to online reports, Days of Our Lives (DOOL) might be coming to an end. It has been reported that its time slot might be given to Megyn Kelly for a new talk show. This is scary news for any Days fan, as the soap opera has a very long history of entertaining audiences, with its very first show airing in November of 1965. Will it stay or will it go? It’s hard to say because the daytime drama does go on a year-by-year contract. As we all speculate on DOOL’s fate, let’s take a trip down memory lane as we review the top 10 greatest moments on the soap.
10. The Start Of Days
Long-time fans will remember November 8th, 1965 as that fateful day when the soap first began. The very first scene profiled a character that still appears on DOOL today, a teenaged Julie Olson (now Williams) trying to steal a coat from a shop. One cannot even begin a list like this without starting from the very beginning and remembering a young Julie, who now holds a very iconic role as one of the longest reigning daytime drama characters today that still appears within DOOL storylines.
9. The Horton’s Ornament Tradition
Not one single moment, but a collage of many. Who else looks forward to celebrating the holidays every year with Salem residents? Every Christmas Eve, one of the town’s largest and most loved families gather to decorate the Christmas tree at the Horton residence. Each family member – whether by blood, marriage, or adoption – has an ornament donned with their name that is placed on the tree. DOOL sometimes provides flashbacks for these warm and fuzzy episodes each year, with wonderful memories of holidays’ past. Here’s hoping fans get to see yet another legendary holiday tree-trimming episode for 2017.
