What does it mean when you dream about a party?

A dream about a party can be a straightforward representation of social pleasure. If we are the primary guest (e.g., at a birthday party), then it could be reflecting either our experience of receiving recognition or our desire for recognition. The dream might also be drawing on any number of different idiomatic connotations, such as the “life of the party,” a “party pooper,” or “the party if over.”
