Help Diana!

I brought home my newly adopted daughter, age 13, from Russia on December 2. I am so glad to be home! She is doing great. I have learned a lot of new Russian words, and she is learning English at the speed of light! We are having a Christmas gathering on January 7. Can anyone give me some ideas or suggestions on how Russians celebrate? I realize it's not as big as New Years, but any ideas on decorations, foods, etc. would be appreciated.
