Though the Beach Boys crooned “Christmas Comes This Time Each Year,” this season will be one like no other. From Elf Tuck-Ins to live carolers to Santa sightings, we have every reason for you to join us this Christmas holiday.
The festivities kick off on Saturday as children gather at our Christmas Cookie Cutters for an hour of baking fun. Later that evening The Polar Express Extravaganza arrives at Sea Island Kids for a night of festive fun, including a trip down Sea Island Drive in search of Christmas lights. Feeling lucky? There is a chance to win at our famed Bingo in The Cloister Ballroom! Sunday brings our 17th annual Reindog Parade so be sure to dress your pups in their Christmas best!
As a family, assemble your “sweetest” gingerbread house on Monday and, later that evening, take a culinary trip to Italy during our “Feast of Seven Fishes” dinner in The Cloister Wine Cellar. On Christmas Eve, grab your antlers and sleigh bells for our Reindeer Dash Family Fun Run. The annual Children’s Christmas Party begins at 10 a.m. where the biggest wonder of the day will be Santa’s gift. Gather as a family for our Christmas Eve Buffet in The Cloister Ballroom then attend our Annual Yule Log Ceremony. This event is one you won’t soon forget.
And before you know it, Christmas has arrived! Special brunches and dinners are on tap for the day along with a white Christmas at our Snow Day at Retreat. Take it easy on the 26th and enjoy seasonal programming during the day followed by a Rainbow Island Supper and Bingo in the evening.
