Season's Greetings is a cover album by Tatsurō Yamashita, released in November 1993. It is sort of a holiday album, though some of the songs have nothing to do with christmas or the winter season.

Season's Greetings features an English version of his signature song "Christmas Eve". The remake version, that has lyrics written by Alan O'Day, was included on several reissues of the CD single of the song in later years.[1]
