Science reveals the reason why you steal the covers at night

trending 25/05/2017

Ever wondered why your partner (or you for that matter) can't help from stealing the covers at night?

Well lucky for you, scientists have come to the rescue with an official explanation!

A new study has found that people with "bedtime companions" or partners tend to steal the covers more than others (which is a given, obviously).

Interestingly, the study found that those who slept with a teddy bear during their childhood were MORE LIKELY to steal the covers in adulthood.

The reasoning/theory behind this is that these people were always holding onto something while they were falling asleep... hence why they like to hold the covers close to them as they drift off.
