So, yeah, what's your best recall?

Let's see who's got the highest dream recall!

mine's 2 per night...

On average 2 per night. But when I have Cheshire cheese before bed I have remembered up to 8 dreams in one night.

I usually have two or three when I actually get to sleep. The most I've remembered is five, but thats only happened twice.

8 dreams in one night!

I wonder how many dreams we actually do have... so many that the memory can't process them quick enough and ends up discarding most of them, probably!

My record is 4 or 5 in one night, but my average is 2 per night.

But really, I don't think the "number" of dreams is a good way to measure good or bad recall. Sometimes I'll remember 3-4 different fragments from the same night. Other times, I recall one or two dreams that are several pages long after I type them.

At my peak, I used to average about five dreams a night.

@ Rodrigo:

I'm not using it to measure good or bad recall! I just thought it'd be interesting to see how many everyone can get!

Well what defines the break between your dreams? So it's not a continuous dream the hole night? I've managed to remember 6 hours of sleep into one long dream, going to various locations - it would feel like 4 dreams, but it's still just one long dream.

The way I understand it, a dream ends when your REM period ends, and when your next REM period starts, your next dream starts too. Although I've heard it's possible to have nREM dreams, though they're supposed to be very hard to remember, and they're supposed to be very "mundane"...

I agree with Rodrigo, it's much more important how clearly and vividly you remember your dreams, rather than how many you remember. What's the point of remembering 10 fragments, if they mean nothing?

I thought we were in REM sleep all night (if we didn't wake up totally), but I guess some people cycles between REM and stage 2 sleep. I figured that when the dream feels divided, it was because I just couldn't remember how it was connected when I woke up.
