Americans across the United States celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November each and every year - and then shop until they drop on the day after, Black Friday. Thanksgiving is the one holiday on the calender that can cause us to replicate a scene right out of a soap opera due to the potential conflict that is stored up in large family gatherings. Daytime viewers also know to expect some changes in the daytime schedule on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Soap Opera Network has gathered all the information fans of the five remaining dramas need to know about how their programs will be affected on Thanksgiving, November 24, and the day after, November 25, of 2011.
