The event even has its own Twitter hashtag — #grinchatseaisland — where you can keep up on all the latest developments.
That’s in addition to other beloved holiday activities on Sea Island, including caroling at the Cloister, nightly “Elf Tuck-Ins for young guests, the Reindog Parade and more.
Long boasting a reputation for being a clubby residential and getaway spot for the well-off, Sea Island has been expanding its outreach to possible new visitors of late. The AJC wrote a story about this development last year, including the different themed weekends being hosted there on topics that are somewhat highbrow (a Creativity Conference) and somewhat less so (last year's Classic TV weekend, which included appearances by Jerry "The Beaver" Mathers and Mary Ann from "Gilligan's Island"). The biggie is an annual "Downton Abbey"-inspired event, that's usually attended by several actors from the hit show; Sea Island says it will host its "final" one from Feb. 4-6, 2016. Go here for more information that and other upcoming weekends/events planned for Sea Island.
Some things never change, though: To participate in any of these events, including "Christmas with the Grinch," you must be a guest of the resort. For reservations and information on the different properties (The Cloister, The Lodge or The Inn), go to www.seaisland.com.
