Dream Catchers (sometimes spelled "dreamcatchers") are made by Native American artisans throughout the East Coast, Midwest, Southwest, and Canada. It is believed that the night air is filled with good and bad spirits while you sleep. The dream catcher catches and traps the evil ones in its web and allows the good ones througth the center. The trapped evil spirits disappear as soon as the sun rises in the morning. Meant to be used for restful slumber, it is not recommended to hang one in the car.
