For those of us who grew up in the eighties, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation has, and will most certainly continue to hold a special place in our hearts. Not because it’s quite possibly one of the funniest movies ever made, but because most of us can relate to the outlandish dysfunction of the Griswold family. In a nutshell, without the Uncle Eddies of the world Christmas just wouldn’t be the same.
Yet, if you’re looking to celebrate the holidays at a resort this year, the New York Catskills region provides the country charm, festive spirit, and all of the holiday trimmings needed to create wonderful Christmas memories regardless of whether you’ve been naughty or nice.
