It's two months past Christmas and there still are holiday decorations to be seen indoors and outdoors at various locations throughout the local communities.
The Veterans and Firefighters Memorial Park in Stockton is one such example.
The chain link fence which encompasses the park grounds still carries the red bows, and the prominent Stockton sign that sits out front still wears a garland of greens and a string of lights.

This home sitting on County Road 75 outside of Sinclairville still sports its Christmas decorations.
Town Supervisor David Wilson says there's a good reason why the decorations haven't been taken down.
"The snow got so deep, we couldn't get to them," he explains.
Wilson says the decorations on his home are still up as well.
"I have to use a ladder to get them down and the snow is equally deep around my house," he says.
There's a home on County Route 75 outside of Sinclairville that has a whole series of decorations on it's front lawn.
The snow doesn't seem to be that deep around the home - maybe the residents just want to keep them up.
That's why Cassadaga resident Lisa Rangel keeps Christmas lights on the rear deck rail of her Miller Place home.
"It's nice to come home to an old fashioned look. The lights remind me of what my childhood home looked like at Christmas," she says.
The Josephson house keeps a Christmas tree featuring jingle bells on a table with the baby pictures of the family's 11 grandchildren.
The table also holds a miniature rocking chair bearing Christmas decorations and a tiny teddy bear.
