Dad Won't Be Home For Christmas - By Anon

My son is only 8 and he keeps saying he doesn't want anything for Christmas this year because his Dad won't be with us. My partner ( his Dad ) was given an IPP sentence last year and this is the first Christmas without him. I know many prisoners families feel the same way about Christmas and I'm dreading it, but I have to do my best for my son. Are there any other parents out there in my situation who can offer me some advice on how to make his Christmas a little easier and most importantly enjoyable?
