It seems like lately almost every baseball player is wearing a beard. I guess it has something to do with batting streaks and winning games. In the old days, men normally wore beards, mainly because they didn’t have razors. However, today is all about having no beard at all.

Well, guess it doesn’t matter, this is just something else that men allowed to be controlled for them. Some people like beards, some don’t… and no matter who the person with the beard is with, it all depends on whether their mate likes it or not.

And would ZZ Top be a band if not for their beards?  At least two out of three seem to think so! A beard, somehow, seems to give a man power. So, it is only fitting that it should be taken away.

It use to be that a beard was considered dignified, a sign of wisdom and experience, and demonstrated the male image for years and years. Soldiers were often not allowed to wear beards, particularly in the day when swords and spears were the main weapons. You could grab a man by the beard and pull him in closer. Although, since a soldier didn’t often carry a kit for shaving, this rule was not often enforced.

However, the real reason for the lack of beards come down to women and whether they like them or not. Men married to, or dating, either have a beard or don’t in most cases by virtue of what the woman in their life prefers. To the man they can be hot and are often itchy. But they are a great place to store things, like food, and they make a statement to those who see you about you.

Then here are those that make a statement but no one is exactly sure what they are saying.  Remember Lincoln never really sported a beard until a little girl told him she thought he looked better with one, and in his day, even six year old’s had beards!

So all in all, this is a choice for the ladies in a man’s life. Do you like a beard, do you hate a beard? Well today is the day to make it known that you hate beards! I’ll bet there is a beard day for those in favor of beards too.

How to celebrate- If you do not like beards, stock up on razor blades and give them to your man, or mate, or self. Consider a fake beard to hide your true identity. Surprise your loved one and shave.
