Here we go again! Every year, Days of Our Lives pre-empts the show on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. This year, Christmas is on Tuesday December 25 and New Year’s Day is Tuesday January 1.

Instead of watching our favorite show, you’ll be seeing either the NHL Winter Classic: Pittsburgh Penguins at Buffalo Sabres from 1 PM to 4 PM ET, or you’ll be watching Local Programming until 2:30 PM until NBC starts to air Capital One Holiday Celebration on Ice… Or if you’re like me, you’ll be too busy to notice because you’ll be opening all those beautifully wrapped gifts under your tree with your name on them!

December 26, Days of Our Lives will air it’s Christmas episode and you’ll see almost the entire cast making appearances, including Alice Horton (Frances Reid). We’ll get to see the Salemites visiting University Hospital, reading to the sick children and we’ll get to enjoy Bo and Hope’s anniversary, her birthday and all sorts of goodies with none other than Nick dressing up as Santa – and Max covering as his elf!

PS In some places, you can catch this episode December 25.

Stay tuned!
