My sincere condolences on your loss. Here's a little advice that someone gave me - Do start new traditions... we get 2 trees, one for the living room and a smaller one for my son's room - he picks out the tree, decorations, lights, etc. and we put it on top of his dresser (securly in the corner) - let your daughter make or buy ornaments of her own choosing (maybe something that reminds her of her dad - even fishing lures would be awesome on a tree!) Do other activties, go caroling, take a drive to look at lights or even bake cookies and take to a nursing home, anything that is new, that you can do fairly easily when you start feeling blue. (Are you involved in a church? Sometimes they have things lined up & need people to put their plans in motion.) It helps tremendously to be around other people, invite friends over (make sure to invite a couple of "younger" guests too to keep your daughter involved), you don't have to have a fancy dinner, rent Christmas movies and have snacks and popcorn.
I hope you are able to have an enjoyable Christmas season.
