"Family friends" and "ex-spouses" should not be on the tree. Period.
Is that how Tom and Alice felt? (That's a serious question.)

That's the most important thing to me, and IMO, I don't think that they necessarily agreed with that statement. Some of the more serious history buffs could probably prove or disprove this theory more capably than I would be able to, though.

Sure, random spouses who never really interacted with the family afterward (like Nicole or Chloe) are one thing, but "family friends" are another matter entirely. I'm sure that Tom and Alice have probably given ornaments to people in the past who weren't "technically" Hortons (like Doug, as someone mentioned above) -- they were considered to be family, surnames and blood be damned, and that was all that would have mattered to Tom and Alice. Frankly, that's all that matters to a lot of people in real life, so I don't find it odd at all.

It's easy to try to apply our own rules to the tradition, but I think that it's important to remember that they're our rules -- not necessarily Tom and Alice's.
Christmas 1994, Alice said one of my favorite quotes:

"All the people who keep Tom Horton in their hearts are Hortons."

Thanks, Jason. That's exactly the kind of thing that I would expect Alice to say about the subject.

Thanks, Mirage75.

I'm currently working on adding in the recaps of the 1969, 1972 and 1973 Christmases, so be sure to check back again later this month. Eventually, I hope to get all the info on the yet-to-be researched Christmases of 1974-1982, so they will be up sometime in the future.

Yes, it was nice to hear her say that, especially in 1994, the first full year without Tom.

I don't know how rare the "Alice" ornament replicas are (they sold it, and many other Horton ornaments for a brief time), but it's always one of my favorite ornaments to add to the tree when I decorate!!

Hey Mirage....that's just one of the Christmas pages.

If you want even more Christmas fun, and to watch the complete first "Days" Christmas episode from 1965, check out this other Christmas link on my site:

Tons of clips and history on that page!!

No matches on eBay, but damn, doing a search for "Days of our Lives" yields a lot of Playgirl magazines. :lol:

Yeah I don't even have the complete set.

I know I saw Bo/Hope being sold at one point, but when I went to whatever site was selling them back then (this was like 10 years ago), they were no longer being sold. They were official Days merchandise, manufactured by Sony.

The set I have is just Alice/Jack/Jennifer/Shawn Douglas/Days logo. I know I'm at least missing Bo & Hope and who knows who else. But those ornaments are definitely some of the favorites of my varied "Days" collection!! Those and the Mac Carey awards. Since things like that are so unique and rare, it makes them more special than a magazine or script, etc...

Going by that Alice quote, there are quite a few people who have recently gotten ornaments who shouldn't have, including all of the ones last year. Victor? Keeping Tom Horton in his heart? Even for this potato-peeling, sweater-wearing, Santa-dressing version, that's a stretch.

When non-family members got ornaments in the past (e.g., Doug), it was a beautiful moment and a major milestone in the life of that character because it gave them a sense of belonging and peace that they had been searching for. And it was Alice herself choosing to extend that honor to someone who had somehow been through a lot with the family in some way.

Lately, it seems like the ornaments are being handed out like cocktail napkins. Just like other aspects of the show's legacy, modern-era writers don't seem to honor this tradition as much as they exploit it and contort it for their own plot-driven devices. We the audience have to work hard to see past these machinations and still try to enjoy what's left of the occasion.

[Thanks, Jason. I had fun browsing through the first link and will take a gander at the other one you provided.]

It should clearly be BALLS.

Isn't Doug the only person who got one while not on the way to being family? That quote is nice but it doesn't appear to apply here.

I think they should/can give ornaments to whoever they want to, but only actual Hortons (by birth or marriage) at the time of the ceremony OR in memorium should be hung during the ceremony. In other words, I don't mind them giving Victor (for instance) an ornament........but hanging it on the tree should be done after the ceremony is over.

But then......I'm still waiting for the big reveal that A) Daniel isn't Maggie's kid after all and B) Jack is alive and being held captive. And for Bo to come back. So obviously I'm living in a fantasy world where things actually make sense. :)
