I did not see any ornaments hung on the Horton tree. I wait every year for this episode. Even my hubby watches it with me. This is a nostalgic event…..December 25, 2010 at 6:25 pm #19363luckeyParticipant
watched a preview, but I got the impression from Friday’s show that it will be done on Monday.December 26, 2010 at 2:48 am #19366goodolddaysParticipant
Yeah I think they are a day behind because it was preempted a few weeks agoDecember 26, 2010 at 2:56 am #19367midwifemamaParticipant
I have pretty much stopped watching since last summer after 40 years of watching, but I tuned in to see this episode and was very disappointed; no ornaments, only Doug. Julie, Jennifer and Ciarra and no reading of the Christmas story on the Pediatric Ward. Just Pathetic! And the preview gave no hint of a Christmas tradition.December 26, 2010 at 3:57 am #19368
Christmas and not fix their preemption by editing to get the Christmas show before Christmas? It’s only been happening for over 2,000 years! But NBC feels powerful enough to make it after The Date.December 26, 2010 at 12:45 pm #19373SWParticipant
on their Christmas/New Year’s break. I think they give them 2-3 weeks off. So someone would have to return from vacation to do it – easier to just let it go as scheduled.December 26, 2010 at 5:29 pm #19375trykeryderParticipant
about preemption. Here, we got about 20 minutes of the show, then the press conference. So there was no break in continuity. The next day, the correct show for that date was aired.December 26, 2010 at 6:07 pm #19376BonbonParticipant
that threw everything off was several weeks ago. I don’t remember now what exactly it was for but I remember then we were complaining that it would probably throw off the Christmas show. I guess we were right so we’ll probably be seeing the Christmas episode on Monday. I’m certain they wouldn’t be stupid enough to omit it from the show completely.December 26, 2010 at 9:08 pm #19377
before the Christmas show.December 26, 2010 at 11:29 pm #19379Jason47Participant
I had posted on my site awhile back that the Christmas episode would be airing on December 27, due to the Presidential News Conference preemption on November 3. Don’t blame "Days", it’s not their fault. The Christmas episode (as well as all the other episodes for November and December) had already been taped by the time the November 3 preemption happened. It’s not like the old days when "Days" was taped just a few weeks ahead of airdate. The only way to have aired the "Days" Christmas episode on its scheduled date would have been to totally preempt an episode, and then you’d have tons of people on the boards complaining that an episode was preempted and not shown anywhere in the country. It’s a small group this year, just Doug, Julie, Maggie, Jennifer and Ciara around for the ornament scene.December 26, 2010 at 11:37 pm #19380
the show for. The Christmas show is big, Big, BIG on the nostalgia for the DOOL fans. One that many remember Christmas of long ago on the show year after year. Each year now the production of the Christmas show is getting weaker and weaker and more of an afterthought. I predict with the way things are going, that if the show makes it past it’s two year contract (or what ever the lastest time frame is), that in just a few years all we will have for a Christmas show is the one second camera shot of one lone ornament hanging on a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.December 27, 2010 at 10:30 am #19381ladyofherbsParticipant
I checked the TV guide on my TV and it stated that Monday would be the Christmas Eve episode.December 27, 2010 at 7:13 pm #19387SWParticipant
I only got to watch a little at the very end.December 27, 2010 at 10:57 pm #19396caseyParticipant
on the ceremony. Years past the entire show would have been on this, with Doug singing and also a Horton reading the Nativity story.
I guess it’s a sign of the Days times that the ornament hanging gets cut back more every year,.
I did like the homage to Tom and Alice at the end though.December 27, 2010 at 11:16 pm #19399PattiParticipant
to tell you the truth, I didn’t mind it too much. At least they paid a little respect to Alice through Julie’s and Doug’s remarks. Too much sadness in their lives right now to have the true spirit of Christmas shine through, I would guess. Poor little Ciara. She looked lost without her parents. I hope this "on the run" storyline doesn’t last as long as the prison one. None of these poor kids in Salem can catch a break right now. I liked the gift exchange between the Hernandez/Brady family. That was certainly a beautiful picture Rafe gave to Sami of their family. I really felt sorry for Sami at the end of today’s show, though, having to look through the window of the DiMera’s household, with Nicole tossing Sydney in the air. Loved Johnny screaming "NO" to Stefano. Seems he does that a lot, but they deserve it for stripping the child from his mother. At least we got to see some other decorations around town, and the Kiriakis fireplace looked beautiful as well. LOL at Kate’s lump of coal in her stocking. Only Vivian would so pull something like that. Two Santas (Rafe and Brady) was cute, but I could have done without the scene where Santa wanted to jump Nicole’s bones right in the hospital waiting room. Those two need to get a room……..and stay there.
