Meeting a celeb: An after-effect of seeing them before bed

Most of us watch television at some point during the day, and many of us watch TV in the evenings before we go to bed. Watching TV can be a relaxing way to unwind after a long day at work. If you’ve been watching a lot of TV lately, especially right before going to sleep, then don’t be surprised if one of your favorite actors or actresses makes a cameo in one of your dreams. Dreaming about meeting a celebrity is typically an after-effect of seeing that person on TV or in a magazine. You’re especially likely to dream about celebs with whom you feel a strong personal connection. It’s common to dream about the people in our lives, including our romantic partners, friends, family members, coworkers, and classmates. Sometimes, our favorite celebrity might feel like they are an important person in our life as well, even if we’ve never met them.
