I always sleep with a blanket, whatever be the weather. It gives me a security feeling. If I am covered by blanket, I feel that I am cuddling somebody or I am in sleeping in the hands of someone I love. I always sleep with blanket covering my whole body including head. What about you?

sleeping with a blanket covered is good for out body. it will keep out body warm or we may catch a cold. but it is not good covering ones whole body including body. the air you breathe is not fresh, which may hurt you.

If it is winter i sleep with a blanket. Else i wont use blankets. I live in the southern part of India and during summer days it is quite impossible to sleep with a blanket as the weather conditions will be quite hot and humid. Only during the months between October and February, I use blankets. In the other months, I never use them.

Yes, the summer is very hard in south India. I am a victim of that. Thanks for the response.

Hello daliaj. I sleep with a blanket and it is a very good blanket I like. I feel warm with it on me on cold winter days. Now I still use it, but I don't always cover my head with it, only when it is rather cold in winter.

Hello daliaj, I always sleep with a blanket too as I feel cold most of the times. I can't stand the cold weather too. I don't cover up to my head but most of the time, I cover half of my body especially the lower part. My feet can feel the coldness easily and sometimes, I can't even stand sleeping under the fan.

It is very difficult for me too stand with cold weather. I can handle hot weather to an extent. Yes, for me too the feet gets cold often. You can try socks to protect your feet. That is what I do. I use old socks at home. Thanks for the response.

Usually a blenket is good. I have heavy and liteweight blankets. If its too hot i may just cover with the flat sheet. And if its real way too hot then i may only cover my behind.

haha I can't cover my head with a blamket but I do have to have something covering th erest of me at all times. Sometimes I have to have more than one blanket because I am terrified of my feet coming out from under part of it haha. I also have to wear socks when I am sleeping-even if it is at my desk in class lol. If I don't want to fall asleep in class then I just don't wear socks. Works everytime.

Hi daliaj, the weather in my place is hot most of the time. I dislike sleeping with a blanket covering on my body. To cover with a blanket during a hot weather night is really uncomfortable. To place a blanket on the bed is just for it’s a necessary stuff that, it should be on the bed. I love my pillow more than the blanket. Yeah, I prefer to cuddle my soft pillow once lying down the bed. I would like to cover my front part of the body only, in case it’s really a cold rainy night. Happy posting

Sometimes, I even fall asleep without a pillow. I can also sleep without a blanket as our season now-a-days is rather very hot. SO hot actually, I wouldn't wonder if our electric bill would be high due to the constant use of the fans at home.

It depends on the condition of the room where I sleep. If it is hot then I would rather not sleep without a blanket, but when it is cold like there is an AC in the room, I hardly sleep without a blanket. sometimes, if I put blanket on then the moment I woke up I got no blanket anymore... hahahaha!

We Filipinos call it blanket but there was a time when my foreign employer years before corrected me and told me it was a sheet i was holding and not a blanket because as she said a blanket is something much thicker like a woolen fabric (and that was the first time i consulted Mr. Webster about it) . But anyway, yes i used to sleep with a woven cotton blanket which was a native product from my hometown. Warm and cold i always covered my whole body and sometimes up to my head. Nowadays i only use a cotton sheet and my body does not miss the thicker one at all because my husband sleeping beside me is enough to keep me warm when the weather gets colder. Hello daliaj! Psst...i still call it a blanket (looks behind and around) my former employer can't hear me from here anyway!

I only sleep with a blanket when I think I will get cold during the night. I like to be comfortable at night but sometimes it would be too warm under a blanket.

I only sleep with a blanket in the winter. But, I always sleep with a comforter besides with a sheet. I feel like I need more covers on me than a sheet even in the summer time.

I sleep with a blanket. Even when the air condition's off and the weather's so hot, I'm just not comfortable without a blanket. So yes, I sleep with a blanket, always.

I don't cover my head, but I always sleep with a blanket, but a light one in summer. I have always found it difficult to stay asleep if there are no covers over me at all. It is probably because since we are born, we are always put in blankets at night. - Derek

I always prefer to sleep with a blanket. The weather really doesn't matter to me. I feel that I sleep a lot better with a blanket than without. I really don't like sleeping without one, for some reason.

I always sleep with covers on me, upto my neck, I feel more comfortable with a blanket and I agree with the cuddling bit as I also cuddle my covers as well.

I'm pretty much like you daliaj! I always make sure I have a blanket whenever I go to sleep. If I see my blanket isn't present in my bed, I will go look for it wherever it is and whatever it takes. I will feel very uneasy once I see that my blanket is missing. I don't know why I'm like that but I really won't be able to sleep without using a blanket, be the weather really hot or really cold, I won't care. I've been like that since my childhood days and I think it'll be one of those things about me that no one and nothing can ever break. I can say that habit already grew up with me. Happy myLotting!

I always sleep with blanket too. I just can't sleep well if I don't have blanket cover my body from neck to toe. But I don't put my head in the blanket, I can't breath.

Yes, I have too even when it's hot. I usually end up with just a thin bed sheet over me.
