Christianity is not a religion...
While I do not agree with government "establishment" of a religion, this is essentially true.
"Christianity" as that word is commonly used, is not a religion, in the truest sense of the word. "Catholicism" is a religion within the broader confines of "Christianity", as are "Methodism", "Baptism", "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints", "Church of Christ", and "Seventh Day Adventists".
Just from my, more or less random, selection of denominations - their beliefs vary WIDELY and they are often in conflict, even with their common core of beliefs. That is what makes America great. Nobody says any of these are more "right" than others.
There is nothing wrong with public expressions of a generic faith - as long as no one feels compelled to do anything other than be respectful of others. There is nothing wrong with Federal holidays for Christimas and Easter.
Nobody is harmed by this. Jesus' core philosophy was how great the world could be if everybody was nice to each other for a change. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
