English term or phrase: sweet dreams
something you'd say to a loved one before going to sleep at night
Heidi Tofflemire
Afrikaans translation:Soete drome.
Explanation:
Rather old-fashioned and tending towards the English. The ever-practical and no-nonsense Afrikaners would rather say: "Lekker slaap!" (Sleep well!) Which lacks the romance of "sweet dreams."
