"Days of our Lives" is turning 48 today. For almost five full decades Salemites have been delighting and appalling audiences with their romantic, raucous and ridiculous antics. The soap first hit the airwaves on November 8, 1965 and has been pumping out episodes ever since.

In light of their achievements, "Days" is having a Twitter party today. Follow official Days of Our Lives Tweets @NBCDays and @DaysofourLives today for their tweets and use #ASKDAYS to ask questions.
