Night

 

the interval of time from sunset to sunrise. The duration depends on the geographical latitude of the point of observation and on the sun’s inclination. Above the latitude of the arctic and antarctic circles, at certain times of the year, night may last more than 24 hours; at the poles, night lasts for almost half a year. Sometimes the concept of night excludes the interval of civil or astronomical twilight.

Night

(dreams)
A nighttime setting is common to many dreams. However, extreme darkness suggests that you are hiding something or are unwilling to see things clearly. You may be the type who likes to ignore, minimize, or hide problems. The darkness represents a lack of awareness and illumination. If you honestly look at the content of your dream, you may be able to identify some areas of your life or personal experience that need warmth, light, and airing.
