Bob Dylan: Little Drummer Boy

Christmas is a time for family get-togethers, which Bob Dylan reminds us in this animated video of his rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" from his 2009 effort Christmas In The Heart.

Dylan is Jewish but when asked at the time of the release of the album if he felt left out of the Christmas season when he was growing up in northern Minnesota, the legend replied, "No, not at all."

What was it like back then?

"Well, 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," Dylan said at the time.
