Coined “Blue Monday,” Jan. 21 is considered to be the most depressing day of the year, and many people will be seeking mood boosters as a result. A new survey finds that one of those attitude adjusters is shopping, as more than one-third (36 percent) of U.S. adults said winter is the season they’d most likely shop in pursuit of retail therapy.
