BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Less than two months after Hurricane sandy ripped through the northeast, many storm victims are still struggling to get their lives back to normal.

Still, communities along the Jersey Shore were determined not to let the storm ruin their Christmas.

Katie's dad, Michael, hired a contractor to get everything back to normal.

After opening gifts and spending time with family, the family says Christmas was just what they needed after a rough two months.

In Moonachie, the Vaccaro family got ready for their Christmas Day feast. The family dealt with flooding from the storm, but tells FOX they were grateful to celebrate the day with loved ones.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
