Perhaps you have come into contact with one particular item or situation more often than any other, this familiarity explaining its appearance in your dream. According to Christopher Evans, a British psychologist and computer scientist, the appearance of everyday things in dreams is simply the brain’s way of processing and arranging information. Most dream analysts, however, find this explanation unconvincing and argue that everyday things in dreams contain symbolic values and may represent far more than their everyday function might suggest. The ways in which common items are used and everyday situations are experienced in dreams have enormous significance, as does the context or scenario in which they appear. In other words, everyday images in dreams operate in much the same way as all symbols and their appearance in dreams is a testimony to their shared, as well as to their individual, meaning. In this chapter, some of the most common everyday items and experiences you may encounter in your dreams will be explored.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you are making a hectic dash to the airport or enjoying first-class perks on your journey, this can point to whether or not you feel anxious or calm about your current circumstances.
If you have packed too many bags for your dream holiday, this may suggest clinging onto worries and issues that burden you. Baggage in dreams tends to symbolize material or psychological concerns, so if you have no baggage at all in your dream, your unconscious may be urging you to leave your emotional baggage behind so you can move forward feeling lighter and less encumbered.
If you dream of losing your baggage, is that good or bad for you? Does it offer you an opportunity to start afresh? If your dream baggage is very elegant and all items match, does it suggest a need to make a good impression on others or an overdeveloped concern with outward appearances?
If a ticket for going on holiday features in your dream, this expresses opportunity. The dream image conjures up wishes associated with travel or taking a risk in some aspect of your life.

Each holiday has a unique ambience that depends on your family’s culture and religion. Consequently, any holiday celebration that appears in your dream must be considered with that background in mind.
For example, Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ, and might therefore interpret this holiday in a dream as significant to personal restoration.
To a modern pagan, however, this date honors the spring, fertility, and earth’s renewal, the implied symbolism being productivity, hope, or healthful rejuvenation.
Consider the name of the holiday in a metaphorical context.
For example, dreaming of April Fool’s might reflect feelings of foolishness that stem from ill-considered actions, words, or pranks.

If the date of your birthday is highlighted your dreaming mind may be reminding you again that your days are numbered.
Alternatively it could be reflecting your desire to be noticed or made to feel special or your discomfort with being in the spotlight.

the daylight hours Our conscious waking life; our area of choice and ability to make decisions. Most dreams deal only with one day. Where several days pass in the same dream, or even longer periods: the dream is expressing periods of change; different stages of growth in one’s life; or very different conditions through which one has lived or might live. Being late: feeling we have left something too late or we have missed out on something; realising we have not acted quickly enough to avert something; avoidance of responsibility. ...

If you are a night owl, a nighttime dream will have a far more positive interpretation than if you were an early bird. You may also associate daytime with routine and work and nighttime with relaxation and freedom. Dreams that take place in bright daylight also suggest your conscious waking life and feelings of optimism and clarity, and dreams of nighttime can indicate the unconscious as well as negativity and ignorance. Twilight in dreams can suggest a period of uncertainty and possible ambivalence as far as your direction in life is concerned. It may also suggest the afterlife.
Just as the 24-hour day is symbolically linked to the human life cycle, so too are the seasons: spring symbolizes birth and childhood and new beginnings; summer, adulthood; autumn, middle age; and winter, aging and death. The seasons can also signify your state of mind with spring representing optimism; summer, confidence, autumn, relaxation and reward; and winter, retreat. When several days, weeks, months, years or even longer pass in your dream, your unconscious is reflecting changes in your life or suggesting that your focus has currently been on things that are not relevant. Along with the second and minute hands on a clock, these dream images suggest slow and careful progression—or the need for it—in your waking life. Dreams of specific hours of the day may refer to your age, to a regular event in life or to a saying; for example 12 noon is middle age, or may refer to something that happens at that time of day, 11 o’clock may be the eleventh hour and so on. Noon may also be associated with lunch and nourishment, midnight with mystery and 6 o’clock with finishing work. See also NUMBERS.
