    Each year, tens of thousands of people have visited a Heritage home where a dad displays a Christmas tribute to his daughter who was killed in a tragic accident.

    But this year, “London’s Lights” has a new home in Antioch.

    Brad Henn’s family was hit by tragedy when 2-year-old London was struck by his back rear tire and killed instantly in 2012. Each year since her death, Henn has created a 140,000 light display that has gotten notoriety in Nashville and beyond.

    “Each year I decorate my house as my only gift I can give her. While her sweet spirit rest in heaven, the lights shine bright for all to see here,” Henn wrote.

    Henn said after five years in Hermitage, he has relocated to Antioch and wants to get the word out. He says about 30,000 people stop by each year to see the traditional light display -- free of charge. Guests are, however, invited to bring toys that will be donated to kids at Monroe Carrell Jr’s Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

    “Be part of something big this Christmas, share it, bring your friends, family . If you’re a parent that’s lost a child I would love to meet you...losing a child is beyond painful but God is so much greater, His hope, His peace....God is the reason I press forward and turn my pain into a purpose,” Henn wrote.

    And if any Nashvillians have extra holiday lights, Henn said he’s always accepting donated Christmas lights. Click here for more information.
