“Days of our Lives” doesn’t have to roll out its own red carpet for its upcoming 50th anniversary — the Hollywood Christmas Parade is doing it, instead! The grand holiday event will be honoring the long-running NBC soap opera with a special commemoration on Sunday, November 30!

It’s always a struggle for “Days of our Lives’” Brady (Eric Martsolf) to stay sober, but events that transpire this week on the NBC sudser push the character to the absolute limit: Following a slew of outlandish circumstances that only happen on soaps, the stressed out addict was just slapped with the news that his ex-lover, Theresa (Jen Lilley), is pregnant!

On Thursday, November 6, fans of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again say goodbye to Eileen Davidson as she wraps her three month stint as Kristen DiMera on the daytime drama series.

It’s been said that the remaining four network television soaps are like all-star sports teams, consisting of the best of the best of actors in the daytime community.
