Days of our Lives is set to be honored at this year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade taking place on Sunday, November 30th!

As the soap kicks off its 50th year next year, current cast members will be on hand to participate in a special presentation to commemorate its enduring run on NBC.

Scheduled to take part in all the Tinseltown festivities are: Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), Galen Gering (Rafe), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Peggy McCay (Caroline), Joseph Mascolo (Stefano), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth-Hayes (Julie), John Aniston (Victor), Shawn Christian (Daniel), Arianne Zucker (Nicole), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Kate Mansi (Abigail), Guy Wilson (Will), True O’Brien (Paige), Drake Hogestyn (John), Jen Lilley (Theresa), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Casey Moss (JJ), Billy Flynn (Chad), Molly Burnett (Melanie), Meredith Scott Lynn (Anne), Aloma Wright (Maxine) and Christopher Sean (Paul).

Plans call for the DAYS to make their way down the parade route in an eye-catching presentation, featuring the show’s new 50th anniversary logo! There, the Salemites will then be greeted by parade hosts, Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada, and presented a special honor to acknowledge their success!

DAYS Co-EP Greg Meng stated on the honor: “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade? We look forward to celebrating this holiday season with viewers across the country!”

Jim Romanovich, President of Worldwide Media for Associated Television International, added, “Days of Our Lives is an incredible success story and has been such an influential show to audiences over the years. It is, and continues to be, the cornerstone of NBC daytime programming. As fans of the show, we are thrilled to give them the tribute they deserve in this prestigious event.”

The Hollywood Christmas Parade will air on Wednesday, December 10 at 4 pm on Hallmark Channel and on Friday, December 19 at 5 pm on Hallmark Movie Channel. Check local listings for additional TV stations and times in your market and area!

That’s nice. I wish that ALL MY CHILDREN could have made it to a 50th anniversary, though 42 years is nothing to sneeze at. I now watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES because I miss AMC and I need a soap fix. I’m a fairly new viewer, less than a year but DAYS is a good show. I do get tired of every character getting shot in that Fake leaf Park and I think they could use some new sets (does everyone have coffee in Brady’s Pub all the time?) but aside from that it’s a good show.

I found a friend in you, Troy. I enjoyed many soaps through the years but never DAYS… until I lost ATWT, AMC and OLTL. DAYS filled the void and though late to Salem, I am glad I can be there nearly every day to watch the goings on… although I still cannot keep everyone’s lineage straight! 🙂

I understand! I was thinking yesterday, when Kayla told Theresa in the Hospital that she and Brady “would have to wait an hour” for the pregnancy test result, she suggested that they “go to the Pub for Coffee”. Really? Doesn’t the Hospital like maybe have a Cafeteria where they could have had coffee? Everyone winds up in that Pub sooner or later, be it breakfast lunch or dinner. Honestly, the actors are quite competent but brother they need some diversification regarding Sets. Over at ABC-TV on All My Children, it seemed to me they had outdoor sets, location shots, and… Read more »

I agree with Greg Meng, “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade?…” Congratulations, Days. I always look forward to the Hollywood Christmas Parade and Days participation in it. This year’s parade will be extra special. Wish all in Salem a wonderful 50th year and MUCH FUN at the parade!

By the way, thank-you Michael for providing this information about Days’ special honor at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. I made an inquiry (earlier today I think) about Days’ participation in this year’s festivities. So this article was right on time for me.

I really do appreciate how you keep fans informed about what is going on with our favorite soaps. Thanks for your diligent hard work!

Now i’m going to have to convince someone to go with me because these people CAMP OUT just in hopes of being seen when all I want to do is see…but you know what…I have friends who rush to Emmy and Oscar red carpets where it’s just not worth the headache..but ok…I thinks me might do this one for once. The best thing about living in Los Angeles isn’t looking for your favorites…it’s just running into them ALL OVER the place…but this is something I do want to see…

Who is Christopher Sean (Paul)???

Christopher Sean plays the baseball player named Paul. Paul is Dr. Dan’s patient who is flirting with all the girls. He looks to be part Asian. He first was seen on Friday’s episode.

He’ll most likely turn out to be gay because the flirting is overkill to throw the viewers off.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

Photo: JPI

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
