VERY SIMPLE TO DO IT NOWADAYS, YOU NEED TO BUY THREE ITEMS FROM STORE....
 12.6V CAR BATTERY, START WITH 85AH TYPE OR MORE.
 ONE 12V DC TO 120V AC POWER INVERTER, PICK THE 3000W TO START WITH.
 A CAR BATTERY CHARGER TO FILL POWER INTO BATTERY.
TOTAL COST ABOUT U$100 OR MORE IF YOU KNEW HOW TO GET THE CHEAPEST PRICE.

yes. Exactly how depends on the details of the power supply for the santa. It is not as simple as a battery.
brute force method is to use a UPS which has an internal battery and outputs 120 VAC (or 220 for europe)
IF the unit has a plug in supply that delivers a DC voltage to the rest of the unit, it has a DC specification of voltage and current. You can cut off the supply and take the two wires and connect them to a battery of the same voltage.
more details would help.
