It's no secret we soap fans are in need of a bit of cheer this holiday season. After losing so many beloved sudsers from the network airwaves in recent years, it's no wonder a lot of us go around acting like Grinches and Scrooges in the comment sections of soap blogs and on message boards these days.
Good thing we have the peeps behind Soap Classics to add a little something special in our stockings this holday season! The same company, which recently brought a 4-disc As The World Turns collection successfully to the marketplace, is back with a special Christmas collection of the iconic sudser's holiday-themed episodes!
We Love Soaps' Roger Newcomb, who is working with Soap Classics as a consultant on their efforts to release DVD collections and streaming content from several beloved, defunct Procter and Gamble soaps, broke the story and obtained this quote about the new Christmas offering from Soap Classics' prexy Mark Yates:
"Because the fans are so fond of these characters, we thought they would appreciate an opportunity to reunite with them at Christmas. We loved these characters too, and we wanted this disc to be kind of like going to a Christmas party with all our old ATWT friends. We think the fans will really enjoy it."
Soap Classics' Christmas In Oakdale is comprised of five ATWT Christmas episodes:
1.) "Christmas and a Birthday" (Dec. 24, 1985) The Hughes family celebrates Christmas and Frannie's birthday.
2.) "Margo's Memorable Christmas" (Dec. 24, 1992) Margo Hughes receives tidings of comfort and joy on Christmas day.
3.) "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" (Dec. 25, 1995) The families of Oakdale gather to celebrate Christmas.
4.) "Family Reunions" (Dec. 26, 2000) Penny and Lyla return to Oakdale to visit their families.
