The bible does not give any directives on Christmas and Easter celebrations. Yet protestants celebrate these–a Church tradition-- Of course the events are there-but the direction on how to celebrate them are not in the new testament.
Jesus Himself gives directions how to celebrate mass with the Eucharist, saying This IS my body and blood. This is the ONLY celebratory directive in the new testament, yet many protestants ignore it?
How can they follow church traditions and not a directive of Jesus and claim to be sola scriptura?
BECAUSE the somehow; despite FIVE different authors of the New Testament; Jesus Himself and immediate implementation after Christ resurrection; ad even Eucharistic Miracles; are still able to disavow that the REAL Presence IS the very Real Presence of Jesus Christ Himself.
1st. Cor, 11
This flows form a Gross lack of Faith, as it relies on human understandings limits being sufficient to override what is cleanly evident to 1 BILLION Plus Catholics; Eastern Orthodox and others.:shrug:
God Bless you and thanks for asking,
Isaiah 55: 6-10 is too not understood.
" Seek ye the Lord, while he may be found: call upon him, while he is near.  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unjust man his thoughts, and let him return to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God: for he is bountiful to forgive.  For my thoughts are not your thoughts: nor your ways my ways, saith the Lord.  For as the heavens are exalted above the earth, so are my ways exalted above your ways, and my thoughts above your thoughts.  And as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return no more thither, but soak the earth, and water it, and make it to spring, and give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater":
