Im suprised there isnt a thread on these little guys.
My mother bought me one the other day... I have alot of Night Terrorz, and she thought that a dream catcher would stop my screaming at night.
Anyone know anything about them? Origin, uses myths. Im too lazy copy/paste something off Wiki.

Pic is the Dream catcher I got. My mother knows I have an unearthly obsession with Wolves...

I had one when I was a kid, but I never did have a lot of nightmares. I had some of them while I had it. I don't really believe in it, but it's worth a shot if you have nightmares.

I'm pretty sure it comes from some native legends. Apparently dreams come and visit you while you sleep. The dream catcher is like a filter, it attracts dreams before letting them reach you and lets only good dreams go threw. You're supposed to put it somewhere like a window, so when it's day time it burns the bad dreams that are caught in it.
Not sure if it's exact but that's what I remember from it.

I have an unhealthy obsession with them too!
But you already knew that, Demon.
What? Stalker? I have no idea what you're talking about

It's a Native American thing. The idea is that dreams are given to you/come to you from an outside source (in some tribes personified as the Dream Giver. Remember Pocahontas mentioning him?)

You're supposed to hang them above yourself where you sleep. Bad dreams get caught in the web, good dreams slide down the feathers gently and come to you.

Supposedly they work better if you make them yourself or someone close to you makes it for you. Especially using things that belong to you.

I had a pink dreamcatcher when I was a kid, but no particular reason. My mother just wanted to put something cute in my room.
I wanted to get a green one to match my new wall color, but I guess keeping bad dreams away from me wouldn't be satisfactory, since most of my not-so-good dreams end up becoming stories.

Explained it best.

I had more than one as a child but they never did anything for me. I still had very intense nightmares, but not night terrors.
