Bob Dylan’s Noel

The singer shares holiday memories with British mag

Print Email

The latest addition to the Bob Dylan chronicles is an exclusive interview the singer gave The Big Issue, a British magazine, about his new album, Christmas in the Heart, profits from which are going to charitable organizations that feed the hungry. His generally terse answers (How does he spend the week between Christmas and New Years? “Doing nothing—maybe reflecting on things.”) do little to offer greater insight into his imagination or talent. Raised Jewish, Dylan says he never felt excluded from holiday celebrations and recalls that around his Minnesotan hometown there was “you know, plenty of snow, jingle bells, Christmas carolers going from house to house, sleighs in the streets, town bells ringing, nativity plays. That sort of thing.” The singer converted to Christianity in the late 70s and is now, he tells the magazine, “a true believer.”
