It wasn’t until 1971 that the show began the tradition of having the Hortons come together and hang the ornaments on the tree; a beloved event that Days audiences look forward to, every festive season.

That year, Alice began making ornaments for the rest of the family, and the custom turned into a phenomenon.

DOOL Spoilers – Interesting Notes About The Horton Ornaments

As most fans are aware, only members of the Horton family and their spouses get an ornament; however, during the 2001 tree trimming episode, the daytime drama honored some of those who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks by adding ornaments and names.

In 2015, the Smithsonian added DOOL artifacts to its national collection, which included some Orton holiday bulbs, as well as some original scripts and other props.

While these tree trimming shows generally only spotlight the Horton family and their spouses, there has been a total of 39 “guests” over the years to crash the party.

With Abe Carver (James Reynolds), Billie Reid (Lisa Rinna), Chase Jennings (Jonathon McClendon), Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), Emilio Ramirez (Billy Hufsey), Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) John Black (Drake Hogestyn), Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall), Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson), and Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) attending more than once.
