Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – It’s v Its

There was no Grammar Wednesday last week due to Thanksgiving and travel. This week we’ll focus on what that is consistently incorrect in many things that I edit. One would thing that it would be easy because “it’s” is a contraction of “it is,” but it’s still messed up.

The easiest way to look at this one for correction is to try it out as “it is” and to look to see if “its” refers to something or someone.

EXAMPLES

It’s easy to say that Christmas comes quickly when one is having fun.

Christmas has its moments with family and friends and strangers all coming together.
