A very Dylan Christmas


And I'm not talking about Dylan Thomas's 'A Child's Christmas in Wales'. Although that is also a worthwhile Dylan-Christmas intiative.

I'm referring to Bob Dylan polkaing the Christmas classic "Must be Santa." Click through and check out how your Christmas party should be.

As if having Santa at his Christmas party wasn't Christmassy enough, all proceeds from sales of his Christmas album 'Christmas in the Heart' support Feeding America. While that might seem like a funny thing to do for a nation full of fat people, it's also a nation full of poor and starving people. Rolling Stone quoted Dylan's
official Website: “It’s a tragedy that more than 35 million people in this country alone — 12 million of those children — often go to bed hungry and wake up each morning unsure of where their next meal is coming from.”

And what better way to ring in the holiday season than Christmas tunes Bob Dylan style, and then helping out those less fortunate? It's a rhetorical question. There's no better way.

Get in the spirit.

As an important sidenote, the Bob Dylan Research Project, an important independent intercontinental grassroots research initiative now has its own facebook group. Show your support.
