Does anyone else seem to notice that as the holidays get closer they tend to dream more and more vividly about family/friends that are no longer here? For a number of years now, it seems like I do. Usually starting around September, it seems, or at least in the fall of the year, my dreams often seem to include my parents, who have been gone now nearly 15 years ... often my grandmother as well, who died when I was in my 30s ... and just last night a very vivid dream including my mother, grandmother and grandfather ... and a Christmas visit. I rarely dream about my grandfather, as he died when I was in my early 20s although he was a major part of my life until that time it seems I do not often dream about him clearly. But the dreams of my parents are often very clear and vivid especially coming into the holidays. Dreams of my grandmother ... or ranch neighbors that I grew up with and were included in our holiday celebrations ... seem to increase a lot for me about this time of year. Does this happen to anyone else or do you notice a difference?
