Xenia Miller had an extensive collection of creches, or artistically crafted nativity scenes, from around the globe. She collected over 100 in her lifetime. Many of her creches were hand selected and gifted to her by Miller House designer, Alexander Girard. Each creche has its own story. After Miller’s passing, her children gifted many creches to her favorite charities. However, a few still remain in the Miller House on the display wall for the holiday season.
