Six months on from the Boxing Day floods which devastated the Calder Valley, residents and business have been celebrating an 'Alternative Christmas' today.
The rains which started on Christmas Day saw festivities ruined for many people in both Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd - with hundreds of homes and business left under up to six feet of water.
The town council organised a day of Christmas festivities, with shops encouraged to get out the tinsel and baubles and decorate their businesses - to make up for the soggy Christmas they lost.
Hebden Bridge Junior Band kicked off celebrations by playing carols around a Christmas tree in the town's St George's Square at 11 am. They were also playing at Mytholmroyd Gala, which started at 12.15 pm, and accompanied there by a choir from Burnley Road Primary School, whose pupils have still not been able to return to their flooded classrooms and continue to be taught elsewhere.
There will be all the fun of the gala in Mytholmroyd, and street entertainment in Hebden Bridge throughout the day.

Petrol and diesel prices could rise within days due to the plunge in the value of the pound, according to experts.
Brian Madderson, chairman of the Petrol Retailers Association, said a rise of 2.5p per litre would be expected if the US dollar continues to trade at around 1.35 to the pound.
"I would think certainly by early to middle of next week we'll see prices moving upwards", he added.
In a statement issued on Friday, the AA also predicted an increase in prices: "Assuming that current market conditions persist over the next 10-14 days, the price of petrol at some fuel stations might be expected to rise by 2.25p a litre or £1.25 a tank."

Jeremy Corbyn has rejected calls for his resignation as he questioned the timing of the vote of no confidence submitted by Dame Margaret Hodge.
The Labour leader said the intervention was inappropriate due to "massive political issues" which need to be dealt with following the Brexit result.
Mr Corbyn confirmed his intention to deal with the aftermath of Britain's exit as party leader.
I'm carrying on. I'm making the case for unity, I'm making the case of what Labour can offer to Britain, of decent housing for people, of good secure jobs for people, of trade with Europe and of course with other parts of the world. Because if we don't get the trade issue right we've got a real problem in this country.
