Season’s Greetings, And Please Don’t Forget The Apostrophe

A simple and timely reminder for our final Mind Your Language column of the year: if you’re writing Season’s Greetings in an email or card, be sure to include the apostrophe.

The greetings belong to a single season, so this is the appropriate spelling. Yes, it’s easier to write ‘Merry Christmas’, and we have no objection if you do. But we don’t want to see ‘Seasons’ Greetings’ or ‘Seasons Greetings’ on any of our festive missives. Merry Christmas and stay accurate!

Lifehacker’s Mind Your Language column offers bossy advice on improving your writing.
