* Newspaper columnist D. L. Stewart recounts, via his book ''Fathers Are People Too'', how every year, the children leave treats for Santa and his wife expects him to eat them (she claims that no matter where he hides the cookies, his children will find them and get upset that they weren't eaten). He subsequently has to eat the cookies and drink whatever beverage the kids put out (milk, Coke, club soda, coffee, tea, runny JELL-O, eggnog...), and when his youngest is four, the boy adds nine carrots (for Santa's reindeer, including Rudolph) to the mix. Then it's implied that things will escalate again the following year since, at the urging of one of the older boys, his youngest plans to leave a ''thousand'' additional cookies by the tree for Santa to take back to the North Pole for his elves.

* In one story from ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh's Stories for Christmas'', we have this. The twist is though, everyone doing this trope all at once is too much for Santa, so he has [[BigEater Pooh]] come along with him to help him out.

* ''[[TheLaundrySeries Overtime]]'' by Creator/CharlesStross. [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Summoned by a belief in Santa]] an EldritchAbomination turns up in a ventilation shaft in the Laundry on Christmas Eve. Fortunately Bob is able to temporarily satiate the monster with a plate of pies left over from the office Christmas party, giving him time to set up a banishment spell. It's mentioned that if the pies hadn't been available, the monster would have been free to run amok, as the 'summoner' wouldn't have kept the 'deal' implicit in its summoning.

* In his Christmas Special, [[PeeWeesPlayhouse Pee-Wee]] attempted to bribe Santa with a large platter of milk and cookies.
