The 47th Anniversary Of Days of our Lives image


Happy anniversary.

"Days of our Lives" is turning 47 today. That's nearly five decades of scheming, squabbling, sex, death and everything in between. The soap first went on the air on November 8, 1965. Amazingly, some people have sat through all of it and some have had it passed down to them like an heirloom.
