Secret Santa causes "anxiety" for millennials who fear being viewed as "stingy" by their colleagues, a new report has found. Psychology lecturer Dr Ashley Weinberg claims workplace Secret Santa is causing high levels of stress and proposes offices should enforce a strict spending limit. A study commissioned by Jobsite said younger workers usually spend more than they can afford on presents for their colleagues, and many feel judged for their level of expenditure. The report found 26 per cent of young workers dip into their own savings or overdraft to contribute to presents. Just under a quarter of employees aged 23

Christmas for me was always about family, not coworkers. We never even considered exchanging gifts with co-workers at the engineering departments where I worked. We decorated the office, had a goody day where you could bring in cookies, cake or whatever snacks you wanted....OR NOT. We had a PRIVATE - not company related in any way, no bosses invited - Christmas party at one guy's house for many years. I think the easy thing would be to just opt out, it is what I would do.

What the hell is wrong with these people? I have visions of them stuck in the company toilet without TP in the dispenser. Yes, there is a new roll. But unaware if they should have the TP roll from the top or should it be against the wall. So there they sit unable to handle this crisis with their pants pulled down looking like the famed "Thinker" statue. What to do, what to do? It must be awful to be frightened of your own shadow, paralyzed with fear, looking like a complete dumb ass unable to function like a normal human adult. What a bunch of pathetic idiots.

Imagine their children. What kind of life will they have after their millenial parents take away all the little things that make a child happy. Now it's the office. Can't these adults (?) come up with a little gift exchange and let it go at that? I always thought "it was the thought that counts."

My employer held a Christmas lunch for us but no Secret Santa. No one felt obligated to exchange gifts although my 5 person team did but only among us..... mostly food items, though. I would not be surprised at all to find that in the future, some companies will offer near retirees bonuses or pay raises to stay on. I'm afraid that a company staffed entirely by these 'infants' will be hard pressed to stay in business. The left created them but unfortunately we all have to deal with them. I had to work with one the year before I retired. It was a struggle every day to get him to do any kind of work at all. He just did not care about the job and was not shy letting us know.

One socialist "psychology lecturer" makes an announcement in New Zealand and it travels the world. I doubt there was any such survey of millennials. Its another brick in the wall (HT - Pink Floyd) for progressive taboos and politically correct behavior that builds barriers between people. The truly indoctrinated and well-schooled will read such articles and rush to implement the "ban" in their workplace. The idea of individual opt-outs never occurs to them because no one can be different. They will claim they are being forced to self-ostracize themselves from a group activity, therefore no one else can enjoy what a blue-nosed snit does not. In every workplace that I have experienced Secret Santa if you want to participate you put your name in the box. Sometimes the "game" is the week(s) before Christmas and no one knows who is participating unless they see a present on someone's desk. Secret Santa gifts are supposed to be little trinkets, stocking stuffer gadgets or candy. If its the one-shot gift at the company Christmas party there is always a "suggested" limit price. Its unreasonable to claim that young people dip into savings or overdraft for coworker presents. The arguments against are so preposterous that they cannot be true, therefore they are not. This is how the commies do their insidious work. Commies and totalitarians of all stripes hate jokes, laughter and fun because of their Godless ideology. When you are responsible for all the starving people of the world, for those caught in the strife of war, for the homeless, for migrants seeking a better life and, most of all, the long-term climate survival of the planet(!); then how can you play, joke and laugh? Shame on you! But to those who believe in our Creator God we know that we are dust and unto dust we will return. Life does not end on Earth but is eternal. In this worldview we do all we can for ourselves, families and others; but life's twists and turns are not ours to direct. Compared to eternity with our God, life on this planet can be viewed as a bobble on our wrist, not to be taken too seriously against the Greater Truths. The follies of men are the fodder of laughter, and laughter keeps us humble. (Another concept unknown to socialists.) It is up to those of us who still have common sense to tell any one of the mindless minions who think this way to go Scrooge themselves.

All office parties are good and often memorable if there is alcohol involved. If there isn't, it is a boring waste of time and you might as well work. Secret Santa? Done it. Didn't much care for it but it wasn't scary.

In this case, I'm with the Millennials. I was never a fan of secret Santa's when I worked in an office. My goal each day was to escape the office environment as soon as possible. Spending time in the office with people I worked with pretending to be in a phony Christmas mood, was just uncomfortable for me. Having to guess what to give to someone in that office was just more of a chore than I cared to experience.

All of the "Secret Santa's" that I've ever been a part of had a strict spending limit and were completely voluntary. If you didn't want to participate, just leave your name out of the can or basket or whatever. Why does one miserable schmuck need to ruin it for everyone else??

Our secret Santa was always voluntary. No one looked down at anyone who didn't join. (My biggest problem was being Christian and choosing something appropriate for a Jewish participant.) To those who don't feel comfortable could participate by giving money to a charity instead.

I've got about fifteen family and extended family members to buy for at Christmas, in addition to taxes, insurance, dentists, doctors, vets, etc. The last thing I need is the added expense of being a 'Secret Santa' at work. If you want to have a Christmas party, fine. If you have a coworker you want to give a gift to, fine, but making it a guilt-enforced mandatory work thing is not something I particularly feel like dealing with. Yeah, I know: Bah, Humbug. And no, I'm not a Millennial, I'm a Boomer.

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016. The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged "charity." That figure was well short of the foundation's total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million. The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million

Thank goodness the Duncan, Oklahoma Walmart is not a “gun-free zone.” Because an armed citizen happened to be doing his shopping Monday morning and spotted a gunman shooting, victim fatalities were limited to two people. Brandon Curtis of Concealed Nation writes: A shooting incident occurred in a Walmart parking lot this morning where a man and woman were shot and killed as they sat inside a vehicle.
