I have vivid dreams almost every night. Some of them are in color and some are not. I dont know what the difference is between the two. Dreaming is cool in most cases.

My dreams are always coloured, I have never dreamed of scarry things except only once when i dreamd that I was falling down a cliff.....I was screaming but no sound was coming out. I think most people dream colour becuase you see even the colour of the dress the person in your dreams is wearing.

AS far as i know the dreams are usually Black And White, but sometimes we feel that the dream was a colorful one, but its not, all the dreams are black and white, i can say this because i remember most of the dreams.. And do you know that our dreams last for maximum for 4 seconds!!, and in dreams it seems that we have been dreaming for a long time!! But till now scientists have got this information only(about 4 seconds), even they don't know that why do we dream!!

I think everyone is different. Some people never dream in color. I almost always do. I remember most of my dreams too.

I can't ever remember dreaming in black and white, and I dream often and all my dreams have been in color. I usually remember my dreams too, more so just after I've woken up. But it gets more difficult to remember throughout the day. I think it would be neat if I dreamt in black and white! I don't know what would cause it though. I wonder if people who are colorblind dream in B&W.

Hi mavrojas, welcome to mylot and I wish you success. I think that my dreams are colored because it is what I remember. I can't remember any dream black and white at all.

i think the color of our dream is blurring. that's why we can't remember the whole things happen in our dream.

Hi mavrojas! Welcome to the myLot community! I almost always have colored dreams. I do not know exactly what the difference is though. I mean, I do not know what is the difference between a dream that is colored and one that is black and white.

I depends. I have had both. I have more black and white ones than I do colored. I remember a lot of my dreams. The one thing I do hate is when I have a real good dream and can't remember it.

well i for one definitely remember my dreams as having colour. i can't remember black and white ones though there definitely is colour for everyone if i'm not wrong. i usually do remember my dreams thus i'm sure about this as recently, i've been having dreams of sceneries and all. it's so great. the view is so amazing that i get goose bumps just recalling it. it's beautiful. i just wonder what seeing scenes in dreams mean. oh well, to answer your question, yes our dreams are coloured.
