It depends on the kind of protestant. Lutherans have always kept Christmas, as well as Episcopalian/Anglican, I would assume. But the Calvinists rejected Christmas, so a lot of the Calvinist related denominations like Presbyterians often didn't celebrate Christmas at all before the 1950s or so when it was more of a cultural acceptance.

I've been discussing it with some ladies on a conservative bulletin board that I frequent and many of them said that they have a Christmas Eve service, but not a Christmas service unless it falls on a Sunday. This is what they would do for Thanksgiving as well, so the evening service is for convenience, not liturgical reasons.
