Where are the amazing Steam sales this Christmas? I've been less than impressed with Steam this year so far!

Those are always after christmas, usually starting the day after i think.

A day or two before, last year, the day after the year before that, I think. This year, the Treasure Hunt ends on the 19th, but they require you to login on the 20th to be entered for the Grand Prize. That's presumably when they'll launch the Christmas sale, with so many eyeballs present.

In fact, some people claim they briefly saw the rules state "... be logged into Steam at some time on December 20, 2010 (12:01am PST 11:59 PM PST), the first day of the Steam Christmas Sale." but I never saw that when I read through them, even on the first day of the treasure hunt.
