Emblematic of their deep faith and passion, Latino families honor the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with glorious altars decorated with candles, flags, and flowers--lots of flowers--throughout the month of December, while other families choose to celebrate the religious end of Christmas with festive Nativity scene-themed decor planted on their own front lawns.

From the low-key to the blown-out, here are some of Orange County's most unique spiritual dioramas. All images by Aimee Murillo.
