Luke and Laura's November 17, 1981 wedding on General Hospital set the record for most soap opera viewers in a single hour of daytime television - 30 million.

Not surprisingly, it's come up several times (with both fans and professionals) as a nomination for Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments. (What's that? Find out here.)

I was twelve years old when it aired. I got to stay home from school and watch. (And now, this is what I do for a living. Cause/Effect? Nah...)

What are your memories of that day? What did Luke and Laura's wedding mean to you? What would you say made it one of Daytime Drama's Greatest moments? What could the story of Luke and Laura teach the shows currently on the air?

Write to me at for potential inclusion in our time capsule!
