Default Christmas in prison

I spent 30 holidays behind prison walls because of my actions. The holidays are the hardest to survive at first. But even harder for our families. I use to work in the prison kitchen so to make a nice dinner for the prison population. Then as years went by I was able to convince the warden that Christmas day family days would help the morale of the prison instead of violence. We were allowed to have two family members to attend a Christmas visit dinner in the prison gym. It was a success and we would even have prison family day cookouts in the prison yard during the summer. One would have to stay out of trouble so to attend. Hope this has helped. Merry Christmas to all!

It's awful to be alone for the Holidays. I know some prisons are better then others about this stuff. I know the one Christmas I got to visit my husband it was very depressing for both of us, where he was they didn't do anything different any day of the year!!!

I spend both Christmas, New Year's Eve and Chinese New Year behind bars I can understand you it was depressing. When I was in jail I could hear fireworks outside people celebrating outside even the guards could go home and celebrate but I am a prisoner not a free man. It was a sad experience I can tell u.
