Dreamcatchers   [812호]
Dreamcatchers0Having bad dreams at night? Native Americans believed long ago that good and bad dreams roam around at night. Because of this, they created “dreamcatchers” out of willow hoops and plant ropes and decorated them with feathers. They thought that dreamcatchers allowed only good dreams to pass and gently touch the soft feathers. The bad dreams, according to Dreamcatchers.org, get trapped in the dream catcher and die the next day.

Dreamcatchers2This Native American handiwork has reached other parts of the world. In Nepal, the store Thamel Handicraft in Kathmandu sells dreamcatchers. Rajeev Ojha, who has been running the shop for 20 years, told The Kathmandu Post that he started selling dreamcatchers four years ago but that sales increased over the last couple of years as the “youngsters have unexpectedly become important customers.” Dreamcatchers are usually dark and decorated with eagle feathers but Ojha’s dreamcatchers use brightly colored chicken feathers and beads. The dreamcatcher’s popularity in the region, Ojha said, is caused by the growing number of young Nepalese who watch Korean TV dramas. He added that the dreamcatcher appeared many times in Heirs상속자들, a 2013 drama starring Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye, and this added to the dreamcatcher’s popularity.
