Since Santa Claus is theorised to be based on a Christian Monk St Nicholas he can't pre-date christianity.
Mummers as folk plays COULD predate christendom... but I frankly doubt it. The tradition just doesn't seem to fit in a society much more fragmented than the early to high medieval period (which is when the plays are first mentioned in passing in several documents).
St Nick (rather than Santa)
