Genre contains Holiday
or Genre Contains Christmas
or Title contains Christmas
or Title contains Santa
This not only allows me to get those two genres but also allows it to snag some christmas songs I have from Jethro Tull, Lady Gaga and Ethra Kit which have the genres of Rock and Vocal.

I use Grouping for a lot of stuff, including country info (like Africa Mali) for world music and kind info for Classical (like Vocal Piano or Quartet).

The solution really should be coming from Apple where a user can segregate holiday (or any other “special” music or sounds like Polka, Tuvan throat singing, monkey cries, Kensington iTrip Stations, etc.) from the other music and iTunes “brain”.
It should happen the moment you buy music from Apple or add MP3s from Amazon or add a CD to your collection and iTunes should be smart enough to notice it and ask “Do you want this album/song/moose call placed in the special Holiday/noise category?”

That was in reference to darkonturas suggestion to add Christmas, Santa… to the Smart Playlist Name (not Title, actually)
Also be sure to set it to “Match any of the following rules.”
