You think just because Movember and No-Shave November are over you can pick up your razor once more? Not a chance, son.

This year’s furry offering is Decembeard, a charitable movement raising awareness of bowel cancer, the second biggest cancerous killer in the UK. While this is a British venture, the theme has international appeal and anybody is welcome to join in and/or donate.

While I’m not a fan of the ‘Real Men Grow Beards’ tagline (since the concept of whatever a ‘real’ man is makes the whole thing seem less welcoming and inclusive), this is genuinely for a good cause, and man do some people have fun with it. If you’re looking for ideas, check out The Gay Beards¬†and their amazing take on facial fashion.

If you’re able to grow a beard, what better reason could you have to not bother shaving? We all love the lumberjack look. (Disclaimer: I do. I love the lumberjack look. Just saying.)
