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.
