About

Season's Greetings or Season's Greason's refers to a drawing of a yeti-like creature known as a Tundra Dweller being attacked by a smaller ape-like creature from the 1990 speculative evolution book Man After Man: An Anthropology of the Future by Dougal Dixon. The image is drawn by illustrator Philip Hood. In 2008 an unknown person added the text "Season's Greetings" to the image as if the image is a holiday card. In 2020 the caption was edited to "Season's Greason's" and a subreddit of the same name was opened, which is used for Man After Man related shitposting.

Origin

On June 14th, 1990, Man After Man: An Anthropology of the Future, a speculative evolution and sci-fi book that hypothesizes about the future of evolution, was published in England. On page 57 is a description of a future creature called a Tundra-Dweller, or homo glacis fabricatus, being attacked by a smaller monkey-like creature (shown below).[1]


2000 YEARS HENCE TUNDRA-DWELLER H--- glacis fabricatus Mosses, lichens and heathers provide the slow-moving tundra-dwellers with their diet. A hook-like nail on the foot, developed from the main toe, scrapes up moss and also pro- vides a grip on the snow. Migratory by nature, the dwellers move to open tundra each summer but winter deep in the forests. As with all migrations it is the old, the weak and the young who fall prey to predators. The five engineered forms do not perceive cach other as members of the same species. When different types meet, they do so as comperitors and enemies; or else ignore one another as irrelevant.

It is unknown who first added the "Season's Greetings" message to the bottom to frame the image as a holiday card, but seems to have been first uploaded online in 2007. One of the earliest available uploads of the image was posted to the Ultimate Metal[2] forum on December 22nd, 2007 by user cookiecutter and has a Photobucket watermark (shown below).
