    Elizabeth Anne Betsy Christensen
This book was written by Elizabeth Anne Christensen, usually known as Betsy. For the last sixty-five years, she has been a passionate Creche (Nativity) collector. In this book she has presented 205 of her favorites. Some are beautiful, some interesting, some strange, even a few that you may consider to be weird! They represent many different countries, continents and areas around the world. Also included are 205 detailed descriptions of each creche. Often wishing she had more details, Betsy shares everything she knows about the artists and their creches. The nativities range from beautifully simple, to extremely intricate. All were fascinating to Betsy and were a thrill to discover. She also loves poetry and has collected nativity poetry for many years. It was both stimulating and exciting for her to search for and find a poem that somehow seemed to "fit" or reflect each nativity. Creche collecting has been a popular pastime for centuries. Historically, it was the European Kings and Queens who were striving to outdo one another, having the biggest or the finest creche. For some time there has been a group called "Friends of the Creche" in Europe. The United States joined this group about a dozen years ago and now the group is strong here and collecting nativities is very popular. A quarterly newsletter, the Creche Herald is now available to all. Betsy was part of a group that in 1983 began and supported a very large Creche Exhibit for twenty-five years in Ann Arbor, Michigan. At the present time, December Creche Exhibits are available in many places in the USA including Arizona, Connecticut, Utah, California, Michigan, Iowa, New York, Texas and Florida.
