I'm in need of someone I can ask questions about ordinary life in Russia.  I'm sorry for being so ignorant, but one thing I do love about LJ is that it gives me an opportunity to learn about other countries and cultures.

As an example, right now what I'm needing to know is:

1) What kind of holidays are traditionally celebrated, and are any celebrated with gift-giving? 

2) Are gifts given for birthdays? 

3) How are birthdays celebrated? (like we have cake and ice cream here, so is there some type of traditional meal/dinner or sweets?)

4) Are there any 'coming of age' special celebrations?

5) Is Christmas celebrated?

6) What would a typical team sport be that boys and girls would play in high school (basketball, baseball, soccer/football?)

7) At what age would the average person learn to drive?

These are the kinds of questions I have.  If anyone knows of a good source - book, website, magazine - that would be great too.
