October 18th No Beard Day

Remember beard day not so long ago? Well forget it now because today is no beard day. I wish they’d make their minds up! Just when you get a really good beard started it’s time to take it away. Who makes these choices? So I know there are people out there that don’t like a beard, they are scratchy and can look a little ratty if not kept up. But come on, putting in all that effort to grow it just to get rid of it today. Oh well, easy come, easy go. It’s hairy out there, lets all do what we can to smooth things out!

How to celebrate – Get rid of your beard. Grow a beard just so you can get rid of it today. Take pictures of the before and after.

September 5th Beard Day

September 5th Beard Day

Here’s another day for the ladies… or maybe not. Today is the day we celebrate the beard. I’m not really sure why, but we do. The first recognition of the beard came from the Vikings in 800 AD. (Though I am pretty sure there were beards before that) Having a beard is the simple act of not shaving. It can apply to women as well as men. (Remember the Bearded Lady!) The art of growing a beard has become more and more refined over the years. In fact, there are titles for the best beards, just ask ZZ Top.

How to celebrate – Don’t shave today. Cultivate your own beard. If you have a beard check it for any missing birds in your area.
