Glennie St's Cecil Snow is Santa's biggest little helper

WHETHER it's climbing on the roof to put up Christmas lights or spreading a bit of festive cheer through the neighbourhood, Cecil Snow is playing his role as Santa's biggest little helper.

The Christmas-loving six-year-old has been hard at work in the past few weeks, setting up one dashing lights display at his Glennie St home.

From the thousands of lights all over the house, to the nativity scene and the Santa sleigh - number 4 Glennie St has it all.

Cecil has proudly taken on the role of director and his excitement is obvious as he races around the front yard in his elf outfit turning on all the lights.

"This is the biggest one we've done yet," he said.

It took two weeks for the St Mary's student to set up all the lights.

"I like all of it but my favourite is the disco light," he said.

Cecil has been raised by his grandma, Rosaleigh Bailey, who said Christmas was a big deal in their household.

While the family doesn't have a lot this Christmas, they're doing their bit to spread a bit of festive season joy with their home.

"He (Cecil) just loves it," she said.

"He tells us where things have to go, he gets on the roof - he said he's not afraid of anything."

While Cecil and his family weren't winners in the Christmas lights competition this year, they have their eyes set on going even bigger and better next year.

"We've been trying to win the competition for years," Ms Bailey said.

With Christmas just around the corner, Cecil is beside himself with excitement.

"I'm excited because I'm getting a push bike and a little motorbike," he said.
