We're over half way through December and as of yet no one has posted any photos of Bob's Christmas lights. One has to wonder what is going on in the world...

Previous years photos have been posted and interpretations of the display's meaning have been given. Are we to believe Bob is not yet in the Christmas spirit? Perhaps a spin or two of Christmas In the Heart will solve that for him... and us!!!

Would someone be so kind as to drive by Mr. Dylan's home a take a photo of this year's light display that we may begin the work of deciphering the deeper meaning hidden therein?

Thanks...


**Feel free to discuss these articles. With the benefit of hindsight, we should be better prepared for this year's contribution.

Thank you for this recap of an amazing project in Dylanology. I believe that this project has offered intimate insights into Dylan, his creative process, and the way he makes sense of the world, that we as fans have rarely if ever had access to.

I look forward to this year's report with bated breath.

I was thinking about this last night. I have come to the conclusion that Bob's lack of Christmas lights can mean only one thing - he is not spending Christmas at home, instead he is in New York over the holiday period recording a follow up to Christmas in the Heart.

If he does not have the lights arranged by the 24th does it mean EU citizens can legally replicate them next year. Cmon BLOB get them up!

I have been praying for this since the release in 2009 and quite honestly cannot think of anything in regards to Dylan that would make me happier.

Merrill Markoe! Wow, haven't thought about her in a long time. Of course, she was Dave Letterman's partner in crime for quite some time. Can't say I find much agreement with her assessment of Bob's motivations -- she seems downright obsessed with political garbage -- but I appreciate her efforts at bringing the Dylan Christmas Lights to the world.

She will never top N for Nobel, and pencil mustache sad...ever.

Although the video was a hoot, the dissection wasn’t as funny as last year’s. I do love these though.
Did anyone else notice the crooked candy cane?
His lights are a complete disaster :lol:
