When I lost my dad I felt the same and that first Christmas without him was hard. There were a lot of tears, but also laughter as we shared wonderful stories of Christmas past. Yes it will be different.
Last year I took dads old sweater that we saw in almost every picture for years, and made it into a small Christmas ornament for everyone. They all remembered that sweater and the tears started again. (and that was 14 years later!)
So find something special to share with the family and cry a little and laugh a little and enjoy each others company and love this Christmas.
so sorry for your loss
