"I'm going to position it over where Santa will be meeting with the kids, so I can press a button and make it snow. It's going to be magical," he said.

He claims his young grandchildren "love" the decorated house and visits from Santa, adding: "Last year they didn't realise I was Santa and were asking where I had disappeared to."
