Ultimately drawn to the traditional Christmas (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

noel

Here is my best explanation:

'christmas' is the definition.

('Noel' can be a synonym of 'christmas')

'ultimately drawn to the traditional' is the subsidiary indication.

'ultimately' indicates one should take the final letters.

The last letters of 'drawn to the traditional' are 'noel'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for noel that I've seen before include "Boy's name", "A lone French Christmas", "Yuletide", "In carols, it's Christmas", "Christmas, in cards", "Christmastime", "Girl - boy - Christmas", "See 7 Across", "Christmas time" and "Christmas; man's name".)
