Today’s #4-Letter Friday installment is to help you get in the Las Vegas Christmas spirit. (Only 13 days left!!!!)
The Ethel M Chocolate Factory in Henderson is a Las Vegas Christmas tradition. (This is year 21.) The employees decorate the three-acre Botanical Cactus Garden behind the factory with half a million Christmas lights.
I go every year and never cease to be amazed. I’m from Chicago and grew up with Christmas lights blazing from towering pine trees. So it’s a “what’s wrong with this picture” sensation to see Saguaro cacti and burgeoning agave plants awash in red and purple lights; the jarring juxtaposition just adds to the romance.
Children’s choirs from local grade schools serenade you with Christmas carols. It’s just a magical place this time of year.
Additionally, you can peek into the factory which is in full swing for the holidays.
Alas, the Ethel M store is open with all its luscious treats. I admit I submitted to the siren call of those dark chocolate truffles….
We might not have snow in Las Vegas at Christmas time, but we know how to light up a cactus garden!
