The Passion Behind Handmade Christmas Light Decorations


Roger and Valerie Cathey own Chaparral Cactus and Succulents. While Valerie has a passion for plants, Roger has a passion for Christmas lights. 

“I just really like Christmas and I’m the type that thinks he can do anything, so I thought well instead of buying Christmas decorations, I’ll make all my own,” Roger said. 

For the past 15 years, Roger has been creating his Christmas light decorations. His ideas come from family members, photos, or his imagination. 

“I kind of look forward to it, I start planning everything about the first of July and then come along about the first of November, I start pulling all my stuff out and start October I’ll be building new stuff,” Roger explained. 

Visitors can drive through the driveway to check out the lights, or they can walk through the trail…just watch out for the cactus! 

Chaparral Cactus and Succulents is located at 11180 Chapman Dr. For more information, check out their Facebook page or website
