The Bronx, New  YorkFor more than 30 years, the Garabedian family has  decorated their house on Pelham Parkway North with lights and hundreds  of animated figurines, many of which rotate to the sounds of holiday  music. In addition to the Virgin Mary, St. Theresa and the Savior, the  house features more secular “saints” like Nicole Kidman, Audrey Hepburn  and Elizabeth Taylor. (photo: Mario Tama / Getty)
