- Those who celebrate No Shave November
- And those who celebrate Movember
At work this past month, 4 of the 5 men in my work group participated (albeit with no rules or official invitations or anything formal at all) in No Shave November. Everyone eventually went their own way with it (one guy trimmed his beard - both around the neck and on the cheeks and also the actual length of the beard throughout the month). I, personally, find that cheating - it's not 'grow a neatly trimmed beard November' now is it?! - but it's also not an official event so it's hard to be bothered by various interpretations.
As a sort of homage to Movember, at least 2-3 of us have agreed to shave the raggedy beards and leave just the mustache for today (Monday, Dec 1st.) We're calling it 'Mustache Monday' and we'll see if it creates a tradition.
So what do you favor? No Shave, Mo, or no change at all?
Song Of The Day:
If you don't automatically think of the 1970's when you see Movember pictures, then you're probably too young to remember those heydays of mustaches. I recently heard again the song "Reminiscing" by the Little River Band and felt it would fit nicely here. The 11th month of the year is certainly a time for reminiscing of decades ago. Thankfully it's just a brief, harmless revisit of this terrible facial hair style.
