(CNN)– “Secret Santa” can apparently bring out the scrooge in millennials.

According to a report by Jobsite– a majority of workers between the ages of 23-38 are not a fan of the holiday tradition.

They point to the financial burden that comes with it.

The UK jobs board found that 73% of millennial workers participate in Secret Santa even though they say they can’t afford it.

In fact, 26% say they have had to dip into their savings to contribute.

To make matters worse, 17% said they felt other colleagues actually judged them based on their gifts.
