Why is it important to remember the dream(s) you have when you spend your first night in a new place?
In Poland and Lithuania (and other countries, I’m sure), it is customary to wish a person ‘good dreams’ when they spend a night in a new place. I guess it’s just superstition, but I’m interested to know what gave rise to it. What is the reason for remembering the dreams? What, if anything, are the dreams supposed to reveal? What happens if you don’t remember your dreams, or if they seem to be the usual recurring /anxiety dreams that you have? Or easily explainable by the people, events, etc in your life? Is there any ‘punishment’ for not remembering? Where does this custom come from? Which other countries have the same custom?
