What does season's greetings mean? It's a non-religious greeting that spreads cheer during a time of various festivities over the holiday season at the end of each year.

In a world with many traditions and beliefs, it's a good idea to use well-wishes that can resonate with everyone. It may be difficult to know just how to sign emails and cards, especially when it comes to acquaintances, work colleagues, and friends who do not celebrate the same holiday as you do.

Luckily, it's hard to go wrong with a warm "Season's Greetings". Use this general greeting to check in with friends, send your goodwill, and let them know that they're in your thoughts throughout the festive season.

Why do we say "Season's Greetings"?

Is it correct to say Season's Greetings? You might be wondering when to use "Season's Greetings" as opposed to other greetings.

It's December and the holiday season is upon us, with celebrations like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Mid-winter or Yule, and New Year all approaching. You may want to wish your friends and co-workers happy holidays but might be unsure of their specific holiday traditions.

"Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" is a versatile wish that is a lovely way to connect with friends and family without specifying a particular holiday.

Many businesses may send their inclusive seasonal greetings to employees, clients, and customers.

How do you spell "Season's Greetings"?

Do you like your grammar to be on point? Is it "Season's Greetings" or "Seasons Greetings"? Confusion around this is very common!

The correct spelling is Season's Greetings, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary. The apostrophe goes before the s.

Why? Because you're wishing someone greetings of the season, so the season "owns" the greetings. The apostrophe goes straight after the "owner", hence you write "season's". (See Towson University's explanation of apostrophes.)
