And advertisers make use of the mindset that people gotta look good and the 'must-have' attitude to sell more products.

totally agree!
Not only holidays,all social events:weddings,birthdays parties,just simple family dinners can be sometimes inbearable because of this "must look good"!!!!
sometimes some people find themselves in a financial crisis just because of this "must haves",i just don't understand what's shameful about living the way you can afford!
"it's social necessities"my mother says sometimes,& i always argue with her about this!

Well, its true. People judge you on the way you look, the way you dress, the way you carry yourself. People want to 'save face', they buy things that make them look good.
