Season's Greetings or Seasons Greetings? How to Spread the Cheer This Year Image

Want to spread holiday cheer while making a good impression this year? Don’t be a grammar Grinch!

It’s time to sit down and write those Christmas cards, but if you’re looking for an inclusive holiday greeting that will suit all your friends—regardless of whether they celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, or just Black Friday—”Season’s Greetings” is an excellent option.

Learn how to send season’s greetings to friends, loved ones, and colleagues this year with proper punctuation.

How to Write Season’s Greetings

Season’s greetings requires an apostrophe between the ‘n’ and final ‘s’ in “season’s” because the greetings belong to the season and all of the holidays included. Generally, this is understood to include everything between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

The apostrophe is required not because a season is a person with possessions, but because the phrase should be understood as “the greetings of the season.”


The exact origin of the phrase “season’s greetings” is unknown, but it is believed to have gained popularity around the same time that “Merry Christmas” began to replace “Happy Christmas,” particularly in the United States.

The phrase has also gained popularity as people search for more inclusive holiday greetings that aren’t specific to any one religion (much like “Happy Holidays”).

However, it’s important to note that “season’s greetings” is mostly reserved for written greetings: it’s not really something you would say to anyone in person (in that case, “Happy Holidays” is a better alternative).

‘Tis the Season for Proper Punctuation
