For over fifty years now, Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has been delighting its fans with intrigue, adventure, mystery, and a ton of romance! Audiences have fallen in love with the Hortons, wished they were part of the Bradys, and despised the DiMeras (for the most part). As DOOL celebrates 52 years on daytime this November, here are 10 iconic moments from the incredibly popular soap opera.

10. Marlena Is Possessed

One cannot even utter the words ‘Days of Our Lives’ without immediately thinking about the storyline that involved heroine Dr. Marlena and the Devil. She was possessed by him at one point in time, but thankfully love interest John Black was once a priest and he was able to rid her of her demonic woes. Only in the land of soap operas!

9. Carrie Punches Sami

Sami unleashed a whole lot of manipulation back in her late teens and early twenties. One source of her frustration was the ever-wanting need to steal her sister’s boyfriend. Sami was obsessed with Austin Reed, but his heart always belonged to Carrie. Sami persisted and was even about to marry Austin (for the 2nd time) at one point. To the delight of many, Sami did not get away with marriage number two. In the end, Carrie not only stopped the wedding, but was able to smack her sister in the process! She then stepped in her place at the altar and married Austin herself!
