The holidays bring a few programming alerts.

This year Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day fall on Saturdays and Sundays, but Soaps.com has learned there are still going to be a few scheduling changes that will affect some of your favorite daytime soap operas. Please take note to the dates and details:

Friday December 23:

Though ABC had originally planned to pre-empt “General Hospital” today, the show will now air a new episode – since all episodes were bumped up from the Friday December 16 pre-empt, due to President Obama’s end of the year address.

NBC’s “Days of our Lives” will air a new episode.
