Dream Catchers are from Native American culture. A Dream Catcher can be hung above the bed or next to a window. It is believed that a Dream Catcher changes a person’s dreams, allowing only good dreams to filter through the web while bad dreams stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Another version is that nightmares pass through the holes and out the window while the good dreams are trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeper.
