Did the government proclaim Christmas as a national holiday?

Because wouldn't that be a violation of seperation of church and state? I saw that question being asked on The Colbert Report.

Since all that national holidays do is close non-essential federal offices, Christmas Day being a holiday does not truly violate the First Amendment. States, local governments and private employers are in no way required to recognize national holidays.

CHRISTMAS verses Holiday?

I just heard that Wal*Mart has learned it's lesson...they are going to dump the word "Holiday" and replace it with "CHRISTMAS" on all their Christmas items! About time! CHRISTMAS is all about CHRIST, so why shouldn't we say CHRISTMAS? What are your opinions? Let’s just enjoy Christmas and STOP making it political…that is all I meant. "Merry Christmas"

It was a bit ludicrous for them to remove the name Christmas in the interest of political correctness from their Christmas decorations. If a product is designed specifically in celebration of a certain holiday, why would one then withhold the name of the holiday from the product?
Christ is the reason for the holiday. If you don't celebrate Christmas you probably won't be buying Christmas decorations anyway. I don't spend a lot of time Menorah shopping, but I don't get offended if I see one somewhere, anywhere...Hanukkah is a wonderful holiday as well.
