Glad to help

First you need to know what his religion is, is he Orthodox or not? The difference would mean a different day for celebration. Beyond that I would say you should have your whole family over ( to make him feel part of it ) and cook 12 dishes ( traditionally Ukrainian ) no meat:

Holodets from fish ( cold fish in jellied broth )
Pampushki ( fried rolls of bread made with yeast)
Kutya
Kolach
Meatless golubtsi (cabbage rolls)
Meatless varenyky (dumplings with cabbage, potatoes or cherries)
Anyone else can offer any suggestions?

Thanks :-))

Cold fish in jellied broth??!!!
Maybe I'll show him a traditional English Xmas!!

No..seriously, thats really useful. He is Orthodox...and I know they celebrate Xmas in January so maybe we shall have tow Christmases!

Can I ask about prsents? In the Uk/America..Xmas is very materialistic. I want to treat him and buy him some nice presents...but I also don't want to overwhelm him. What do you think?

It is really good, I realize to you as to Americans it sounds gross, but its finger licking good. First you have to have fresh white fish, you cut it in 2 inch pieces and fry it ( first season it and coat it with flour ) in sunflower oil, prefferably. You arrange it in a shape of the fish on a long platter, decorate by peices of slices lemons and carrots and parsley around the fish. Then make fish stockadd some gelatin to it and pour it over the fish, put the dish in the fridge or outside to chill, Eat with fried rolls. What do you serve for English Christmas?
