MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. Those Russians who are in the habit of surfing the world web in search for an answer to any poser in life most often request interpretations of dreams in which they see images of people whose earthly existence came to an end a while ago, as follows from query statistics one of Russia’s popular search engines, Yandex, published on the occasion of World Sleep Day, being marked on March 18.
Each week Yandex users in Russia key in more than 300,000 questions that boil down to "What does it mean when you dream about?…"
The endings of such queries are many and varied - starting from usual "dress", "cat" or "house" to rather rare ones - "pike" and "door." Most often Russians would like to see the interpretation of some major events, so on the top of the list one finds rather personal, sensitive themes, such as "dead person", "child", "pregnancy", "wedding" or "work."
The most often mentioned themes of dreams remain practically unchanged with time and vary little from place to place. Over the past two years world web users in all regions of Russia had about the same dreams: meetings with dead relatives, relations with former sweethearts, weddings, children, work, natural disasters and food.
Animals are quite frequent in people’s dreams, too. One of the most often asked questions on that score addressed to Yandex are about the meaning of dreams involving cats, dogs, snakes and fish. Dreams about fish are mentioned most often - such queries hold fourth place on the Yandex list.
"Dream queries are most often in the morning, minutes after people wake up - at about 09:00," says Yandex.
World Sleep Day has been marked annually on the Friday of the second full week of March since 2008. The initiative’s aim is to promote the habit of having sound sleep and also to enhance public awareness.
