Season’s Greetings: Get The Apostrophe Right

As is traditional for Mind Your Language, we end the year with a festive reminder. When you write Season’s Greetings in an email or card, remember to include the apostrophe.

In this case, the logic is easy: the greetings belong to a single season, so the apostrophe goes before the final S, not after it. If apostrophes are a challenge for you, check out our detailed guide. Have a fun-filled Christmas and a spectacular 2015, and remember: accuracy matters.

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