How did Christmas start?

The middle of winter has long been a time of celebration around the world. Centuries before the arrival of the man called Jesus, early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter.

Many peoples rejoiced during the winter solstice when the worst of the winter was behind them and they could look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight.

The Origin of Christmas Tree

Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we now know it in the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes.

Some built Christmas pyramids of wood and decorated them with evergreens and candles if the wood was scarce. It is a widely held belief that Martin Luther, the 16th-century Protestant reformer, first added lighted candles to a tree.

Benefits of Small Houses


Pop Up Homes range of tiny houses and small homes have several advantages over their larger counterparts.

Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy when “going tiny:”

– Standard home sizes are generally from 100 – 500 square meters, while tiny homes are generally 37 –58 square meters.

– Less square meters means less to maintain! It also means less clutter and a deeper commitment to minimalism. And of course, little of no MORTGAGE.

The original intent – “living debt-free” or as close to it as possible – is a beneficial aspect of tiny home living. The tiny home movement has largely spawned from this benefit alone. Many people live paycheck to paycheck, and not having a mortgage frees them up to enjoy more of life.

Pop Up Homes offers 3 styles of small homes, each unique in their own right, they are very adaptable and customisable, they are the perfect downsize solution. Additionally, maintenance and investment costs are cheaper than a traditional home as well as a general reduction in overhead costs such as utilities.

There is such a multitude of benefits that come from downsizing to a Pop Up Home – affordability, freedom and customisation among the many.
