Your cat may have eaten something poisonous or a piece of holiday decoration. I personally would bring my cat to the vet right away if he stopped eating. Cats can become very sick, very fast when not eating or drinking. A cat who wants to curl up and not eat or drink is at high risk.

You might try tempting her with a very stinky cat food (like 9-Lives) or some tuna. If she isn't attracted to it or ignores it, go to the vet right away!

Please take her to a vet as soon as you can. When cats have not eaten for 24 hours or more, they could develop fatty liver disease, and that could kill them. Please don't hesitate to go to a pet ER if you have to.
