Dreams are perhaps the most amazing & mysterious experiences of all living creatures but specially the humans. In the old days, Romans were known to use their dreams for analysis & future forecasts. The important dreams were submitted to the Senate and then researchers & Roman monks used to analyze those dreams for interpretation. Romans believe that the dreams are actually the messages from their Gods. Dreams also led to many famous battles which were only based on the interpretation. In spite of all this, many people used their dreams in different manners. For example, many known artists took inspiration from their dreams & created their master-pieces. Below we are presenting a list of 10 important, amazing, somehow weird & interesting facts about dreams. We hope you will like the information & will share with your friends. Enjoy!
