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.)
