           I hope everyone had a good Christmas and is continuing to enjoy the holiday season.

          When I was a child, Christmas used to factor into my dream life to a greater extent than it has in my adult life.  I can't actually recall having any Christmas related dreams as an adult.  It's probably due to the busy times of the season--the travel, the gatherings, and out of the ordinary activity.  This is a season where I usually don't remember my dreams.

          Though I can't recall any specific childhood dreams at Christmastime, I do remember having holiday related dreams.  They were usually the wish dreams of what I fantasized about getting for Christmas or dreams of receiving special unexpected bounties of gifts.   The dreams were always happy and hopeful.

         During this season I hope you are having those happy dreams and most of all I hope you are having happy times in your waking life.   I wish you all the best in the year to come.

          Can you remember having special dreams related to Christmas when you were a child?   Does the activity of the holidays interfere with your current dream life or does it enhance your dreaming?   What types of dreams do you associate with Christmas?

Love the pic of the Space Needle. I do miss living up there. I hope you all had a great Christmas. Ours was very quiet. I know I had holiday themed dreams in the past week or so but I can't remember the specifics.

I don't think I've ever had a holiday themed dream. Usually too tired orchestrating Christmas for the family. I don't dream like you do, Arlee, it must be that overactive imagination. . . ?

Hope your holidays are great, Lee. Best wishes to you and your wife!

No seasonal dreams this year and none that I remember from the past, but I do wish you for you, and all of us, a great year ahead!

May 2014 be happy, healthy, and successful!

JoJo-- That pic caught my eye--appropriately dream-like. So far my holiday has been nice though with a good bit of driving.

DG-- I also don't recall many holiday time dreams probably for the same reason you state.

Yolanda-- Right back atcha with those good wishes.
