Common Mistake: Missing Apostrophe in 'Season's Greetings'

It's the time of the year again when we exchange warm wishes and greetings with our friends, family, and colleagues. One popular phrase that you will often come across during this festive season is 'Season's Greetings.' However, it is quite common to see this idiom being misspelled without the essential possessive apostrophe.

Why is the apostrophe important?

The apostrophe plays a crucial role in indicating possession or ownership. In the phrase 'Season's Greetings,' the apostrophe shows that the greetings belong to the season. Without the apostrophe, the phrase loses its intended meaning and becomes a simple reference to the greetings related to any season.


  • Incorrect: Seasons Greetings
  • Correct: Season's Greetings

As you can see, the incorrect version lacks the possessive apostrophe, which changes the meaning of the phrase. It is important to pay attention to this common mistake to ensure proper usage of the idiom.
