Jeff Lopez got into the Christmas decorating business because he wanted to work only three months a year and kick back the rest of the time. Fat chance. Lopez has done such a good job of snagging big contracts with cities and shopping malls that his company, Santa Ana-based Dekra-Lite Industries Inc., is busy all year. It has some of the largest high-profile decorating assignments in Orange and Los Angeles counties--including South Coast Plaza, Fashion Island and the city of Beverly Hills.
