If you dream about Christmas, this can have a lot of different meanings. Sometimes, it can be a dream about happiness and gifts (particularly for children); for others it signifies a time for gluttony and sexual indulgence, or having a holiday from work. For some, it reflects the birth of Christ.
Dreams often contain an internal meaning for us to explore. It usually reflects the relativity between our outer and inner selves, so Christmas dreams are most likely to be related to this.
Example: In a shop where I was previously employed, I met one of my previous coworker’s sisters. I enquired about her brother, asking how he was and what he was up to, but she evaded the questions. She extended an invitation for me to spend Christmas with them, which could lead to an affair if I took her up on it.
The theme of this dream is a desire for sex, although the person dreaming was married. However, it was more about love than sex. This person’s wife wasn’t a terribly loving person.
Example: I dream about our Bishop, mopping the floor! He is working hard, and I can see the sweat dripping from his forehead. I am surprised to see that he is wearing blue denim cut-offs and a black, turtleneck sweater. As he sees me approaching, he stops what he is doing and leans on the mop handle, giving me attention. I can feel a sense of warmth in his interaction. I am excited to show him some rolls of an IBM print-out, full of names and numbers. I point out to him that there is a married lady over in the corner, working with some kids. This is not unusual for her. I discussed with the Bishop how many women like this spend so much time doing God’s work, unintentionally shaming others who refer to themselves as “religious”. I pointed out that as a wife and mother, she is sticking to her strong Christian beliefs and simple doing the work of Christ. The Bishop agreed with me and said that there was a lot that needed to be looked into. I felt connected with him on a deeper level.
In this dream, The Bishop was seen in a very different role to how he was usually pictured. I believe it indicated a large amount of common vision for the Church, but also some places where this vision differed. I think this dream may have signified the demand for my own femininity to have its role in the Church.
