Holiday season means some downtime for soaps.

Each year soap operas take some time off, which allows viewers to concentrate on family and friends during the holidays. Soaps.com urges readers to take note of the pre-emptions surrounding this year’s Thanksgiving break.

Thursday November 24:

ABC’s “General Hospital” will air a repeat of its November 26, 2014 Thanksgiving episode where Carly and Sonny shared a special moment, Duke confronted Anna for forgiveness, Alexis and Julian made a huge discovery and villains lurked about town. Read Soaps.com’s GH Thanksgiving Recap: Pizza again for a refresher.

CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” are pre-empted due to sports programming.

NBC’s “Days of our Lives” will not be seen but fans can watch video footage as Days stars reveal what’s come for their storyline.

Friday November 25:

ABC’s “General Hospital” will not air today, due to a national pre-emption.

CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” will air a repeat episode. However, “The Bold and the Beautiful” will not be seen and will be replaced with sports coverage.

NBC’s “Days of our Lives” will not air today.

Soaps.com hopes everyone who celebrates has a wonderful holiday, and we’ll be back with daily soap opera recaps on Monday November 28.
