“Season’s Greetings” is a greeting more commonly used as a slogan on winter season greeting cards and in commercial advertisements, than as a spoken phrase. In addition to “Merry Christmas”, Victorian Christmas cards bore a variety of salutations, including “Compliments of the Season” and “Christmas Greetings.” By the late 19th century, “With the Season’s Greetings” or simply “The Season’s Greetings” began appearing. By the 1920s it had been shortened to “Season’s Greetings,” and has been a greeting card fixture ever since.
Some believe that the “Season” in “Season’s Greetings” is referring to the Christmas season. While others consider the replacement of “Merry Christmas” with “Season’s Greetings” as an attack on the Christian elements of the Christmas holy day. Others claim it is commercially-motivated pandering to a greater consumer base hoping that avoiding overtly Christian or Christmas messages will spur shoppers to spend, regardless of any religious overtones.
A differing opinion claims the phrase “Season’s Greetings” is more neutral and avoids any implication of one “holy” day’s dominance over another. It may be used to be more comprehensive of other winter holidays. Here are some beautiful quotes for Seasons Greetings.
