The festive season is a time for family, celebration, delicious food and a whole lot of shopping! With heavy discounts and great deals, there's no better excuse to shop till you drop. The sight of shiny new things, the thrill of heavy shopping bags, the anticipation of bumper sales... who says you can't buy happiness!

1. Retail Therapy is your ultimate solution to depression, heartbreak and any other blues you might face in life. It works like a charm every time.

2. Your favourite festival is any Shopping Festival. Nothing calls for a bigger celebration!

3. Your Internet history has tons and tons of online shopping portals.

4. It breaks your heart to be broke before the end of the month. No more shopping.

5. You watch advertisements more seriously than you watch a movie or sitcom.

10. You impulsively buy stuff you don't need. You feel guilty. Repeat.
