Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. Two nights ago at age 18 I was exhausted after studying for a major exam for the past two weeks at school and taking the exam on the campus of ASU in Montgomery AL. I remember praying that I pass this examination with a high score. I didn't eat because I fell asleep on top of my bed covers. I remember having a very pleasant dream. My favorite aunt & uncle in Detroit MI had won the 'big' lottery. They surprised all of my family members by paying off all of our debts. This was a big relief for the family members. It gave each of them an opportunity to splurge on some personal things that they desired but couldn't afford due to the bills they had accumulated. My Mother was so excited that she broke down in tears of joy. My sister and I were delighted and full of giggles as they paid off all of our college loans. In addition they gave me and my sister a brand new bright yellow car to drive to and from school. This dream was so real to me; when my Dad awakened me the next day I was still smiling; of course I was disappointed that my dream wasn't real but it was a pleasant experience to dream about!
