Annual Events on Soap Operas

Recommended Posts

What events/traditions happened yearly or occurred over the course of several years on the soaps? I know GL had the Bauer BBQ for 4th of July and I had another one come to mind but just went blank as I was typing this 🤣.

It didn't happen nearly enough (I believe 4 or 5 times) but I always loved AMC's Crystal Ball. I think it used to occur in the winter and mostly it just gave everyone an excuse to dressed to the nines.

Horton Xmas tree trimming. When did that begin? In the 70's?

 
1966. Clips of the first ornament hanging appeared in the 2001 Christmas Ep(the one that had the 9/11 memorial). I recall for a good while there in the 90’s and ‘00’s the Hortons held a 4th of July picnic as well. 

 

The Snyders on ATWT always did something for Thanksgiving for years although it tapered off eventually.

Some summer events off the top of my head

 

Another World - KBAY telethon (only happened 2-3 times but a great showcase for the singing and dancing talents of the actors and the reappearance of Cass in drag as Crystal Lake )

 

Young and the Restless - The Abbotts or the Newmans usually had a July 4th pool party (mostly an excuse to get Brad Carlton in a speedo)

 

General Hospital - Founders Day, (everyone went to the park, dressed in Victorian costumes, would be slightly offensive in the modern era), served as a cover when Luke broke into mob boss Frank Smith's office and later when Cecilia needed to run into Jimmy Lee.

 

Days of Our Lives - the annual reveal that the local hunk or teen vixen was one of Stefano's long lost children (jk)
