Here are the most common dreams in Canada

Have you ever had a dream that your teeth were falling out?
A recent study ventured to find out if dreamers are united by their geographical boundaries. Canadians had some interesting similarities around the world.

What are some of the weirdest dreams you've ever had?

If you're like most people, you've probably had a few that had you seriously giving your head a shake when you opened your eyes. Dreams are comprised of oftentimes bizarre, unexpected, and terrifying scenarios. At times, they are so wonderful that you don't want to wake up—or when you do, you're decidedly disappointed. 

But the one thing all dreamers have in common is that they wake up. If you don't wake up, it's safe to safe you probably aren't dreaming. 

A recent study ventured to answer a slightly different query: are dreamers united by their geographical boundaries?

The study, conducted by, shows the most-Googled dream in every country. The team translated the word “dream” in every language and then used Google search data to find the most commonly searched in (nearly) every country.

The most common dream in the world is of snakes, which are richly represented in history throughout the ages. The slithering reptiles are also the third-most dreamt-of item in Canada. 

But there’s no panic quite so real as the dream of losing your teeth. Losing one's chompers is the most common dream in the Great White North. It is also the second most prevalent dream in the world and is number one in a whopping 17 countries, which, interestingly, are mostly northern ones. 

Unfortunately, losing your teeth in a dream may signify "anxiety and depression," with an element of self-consciousness, according to a study by the University of Colorado. 

Dreams involving cars were second-highest on Canada's sleepy-time list, while dreams of someone dying coming fourth. Dreams involving tears rounded out Canada's top five.
