    Days Recap: Friends, Family, Forgiveness.

    Wednesday, December 25 2013
    Ornaments are hung at the Horton's, Parker spends Christmas with Daniel, and Anne is set on having fun at the hospital party.


    (NBC)

    Maggie's happy to see Parker run through the Kiriakis home. Victor's upset that Brady is gone but is happy she's there and kisses her. Maggie gives Daniel the box he requested.


    In the square, Kate wishes Willie a Merry Christmas and hangs up. Lucas overhears her say, "Goodbye and good riddance," and recognizes Nick's infamous flash drive that she's pulled from her purse. In the scheme of things Lucas doesn't think what happened is life or death.

    At the apartment, Gabi's worried when she sees the Santa photo Lucas sent. Adrienne arrives with regrets that Justin is stuck in Denver but brings all of Arianna's gifts he bought to spoil his 'first girl'. She asks Gabi if she's at peace with her decision to stay in Salem. Gabi couldn't leave what she has here but agrees it was upsetting that Nick wanted to join her. Adrienne looks perplexed when Gabi responds how she doesn't have to worry now because he's gone.

    At the Brady Pub, Eric admits he didn't want to make a scene at St. Luke's when Sami conveys he was missed at mass. Nicole brings gifts for the kids and argues how she was just trying to help Eric when Sami admits knowing Eric went to mass with her. Sami thanks Nicole and Eric follows her out when she leaves. Nearby, Kayla has her reservations that Theresa is turning her life around like Caroline thinks while Sami explains to Roman that Eric went to mass with Nicole when he finds her watching them outside. Roman thinks the Lord works in mysterious ways. Outside, Eric invites Nicole to stay but she has plans which he assumes are with Daniel. He rejoins Sami and wonders if EJ isn't there because of him. Sami can't tell him what's going on and gets distracted when Caroline asks Eric to fix something Nick used to fix for her.

    At the Horton's, Julie shares her concern over Bo not being there. Hope and Ciara arrive. Julie mentions that Michael has a palm tree to remind him of home no matter where he is. Ciara takes an ornament when no one is looking. She interrupts Hope telling Doug that Bo isn't home and says, "Daddy is here," before presenting his ornament for them to hang. Hope hangs it next to Ciara's and the rest of the family follows suit. Will announces to Arianna that she's official and hangs her ornament. After, Ciara confronts Ali about blabbing her secret about the earring and doesn't accept her apology. Julie realizes they forgot to hang Nick's ornament. Lucas agrees that is weird as she promises Nick's got another thing coming if he thinks he's going to just drop off the face of the earth. Gabi and Kate fill Sami in when she arrives.

    At home, Daniel and Parker make a gift before their video chat with Chloe. Nicole admits she has no plans and helps them hang their Horton ornaments that Maggie obtained for Daniel on the tree. She's moved when Parker gives her an ornament with her name. Later, Parker sleeps in her lap as Daniel reflects that the holidays turned out better than he thought.

    Back at the Brady Pub, Caroline talks Theresa into going to the Horton's after Eric reminds them about friends, family and forgiveness being what the holidays are all about. Victor comes in and privately apologizes to Eric. He appreciates it and wishes Victor a Merry Christmas.

    Anne passes out Christmas hats and promises a party full of surprises at the hospital. Maxine's tired of Anne when she hears her say the party will be 'fun if it kills us' and rips Anne's 'ridiculous' hat from her head. Later, Anne's pleased when Jenn arrives worked up over a missing food bank delivery. Julie needs Jenn's Christmas list for the kids when Jenn disappears and Kayla's confused since she has confirmation of the delivery. During the distraction Anne sits down to read The Christmas Story dressed as an elf. Doug, dressed as Santa, interrupts and invites Abby to read. Jenn returns and Anne frowns as everyone sings a carol.

    Later at the Horton's, JJ's surprised to see Theresa and asks, "What the hell are you doing here?" She reminds him to do everything she says or he'll have trouble. Hope's not certain what to think of the exchange. Abby thinks Jenn is a much better person than she is to invite Theresa. She noticed Daniel's ornament wasn't on the tree and Jenn admits they are all moving on. JJ looks on, upset. Kate and Sami try to calm Gabi's nerves while Julie asks Lucas, Will and Sonny what Kate and Sami are bonding over. Maggie thanks Jenn for being a wonderful steward of the family home and sends a message of hope for the holidays.

    Today was awesome, except for Theresa's mouth, I can't wait to see her get it good! Even Anne was funny when "santa" booted her out of the way before she started reading the story. Theresa was so wicked today! Leave Theresa, Leave!! Otherwise, great!!!!!! show!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ITA Spring!!! Just finished watching. It was great. I think maybe Hope overheard a bit of Theresa's bullying JJ. I'm hoping Theresa's world unravels a bit. Too bad JULIE didn't overhear, for once her mouth would be appreciated if she told Theresa where she can go with that nasty attitude of hers.

    The Anne thing was MUCH better than I thought. It ended up actually being funny and made Anne look stupid. I loved it when JJ said "Elf you." I saw he put his necklace on that looks kind of like Daniel's, maybe that was in reaction to Julie's opinion of Daniel. I was rooting for him to throw Theresa through the window, Christmas or no Christmas, though I suppose that wouldn't be good for his case if he did that lol

    NOOOO... I just read on another board that Ken Corday said in SOD that he thinks JJ and Theresa would make a great couple. I guess Brady/Kristen wasn't bad enough for him.

    Just got done watching the show, now that's what days family is all about. Awesome!!! I agree could of done without Theresa mouth at the end to JJ I hope Hope heard some of the conversation between Theresa and JJ. Glad Kayla still don't trust her. Glad Maxine was on to Anne loved when she pulled that ridiculous hat off Anne's head. And Doug bless his heart just pushed Anne right out of the way. Lololol. Thank you to TPTB for giving us a fantastic Christmas episode. Now if you can just keep doing it for the next 365 days we would very grateful ....

    I would have loved at the end of the show when Maggie was talking into the camera and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. They would have had a flash back of Tom and Alice sitting in the chair like they did one year. That would have made the show extra special. JMO.

    @LGM ITA! I would have loved some flashbacks of Tom and Alice. But I loved when Jen and Abby made the treats like Alice used to (my mom said, "No drugs in them this time. lol) and when Ciera took B o's ornament, I thought she was going to hide it because she was upset but when she showed it to Hope that was a sweet moment. Glad Kayla has her eye on Theresa, if only JJ knew his aunt had his back.

    This goes out to all....for whatever the reasons may be...
    and it goes especially for Ladybelle and Zuzu & her
    hubby!!

    When difficulties come our way.....having the Lord as
    our Shepherd.....makes all the difference.

    He sends His goodness and mercy to refresh and restore
    our souls.

    And He wisely knows.........when.....we can use a little
    extra time..............for lying down in green
    pastures.

    We on this board are praying that you all feel
    HIS CARE and you all will feel better every day!!
    AMEN!!! AMAZING GRACE!!!

    @CoachJack I'm just wondering that maybe they are not doing flashbacks of the old cast members, because if they do they have to pay those actors for their face on the screen. Was just wondering, if I knew how to look into it I would. Just a thought.

    Posted by CoachJack at Wednesday, December 25 2013 03:01 PM

    Merry Christmas @holdingon! Thank you for your beautiful heartfelt prayer. AMEN and AMEN...

    @LGM You know, that's probably true. Sad though.
