London: Irish singer Ronan Keating feels that people tend to overspend on Christmas shopping.

The 35-year-old former Boyzone star said that during the holiday season, the pressure to buy gifts for the loved ones is tough to resist and people end up buying expensive gifts, reported Contactmusic.

"Just being out on the street it`s kind of pushed down your throat, there`s nothing you can do about it, you feel you have to buy," he said.

"It`s a guilt thing, you have to spend money. You have to buy new clothes to wear to mass on Christmas morning. All of that - it`s just drilled into us, I think. It`s tough on people," he added.
