The single most important day of the year has arrived
By Chandler Walter, Columnist
New Beard’s Day was celebrated with much merriment this December 1, as the month of Movember ended and we rang in the New Beard’s with hope, excitement, and expectations for what is to come.
Men everywhere found themselves with that special razor at midnight, enjoying a traditional touch of the upper lip and popping a bottle of aged whiskey.
“The end of the Mo is always a special time, it’s my favourite day in December by far,” said Jon Remington, 22. “With the start of the New Beard, your slate is wiped clean. You can be whoever you want to be, have whatever kind of facial hair you want to have. New beard, new me.”
And it is not just men who are rejoicing at the freshly shaved faces of New Beard’s Day, either, as we got an insight to what this momentous day means to Douglas College female student Olivia Scott:
“I guess some of the guys look better now that they don’t have those ridiculous moustaches.”
There you have it: New Beard’s Day has a positive impact on everybody, everywhere.
New Beard’s Day has received so much of a positive response lately that there has been serious talk of making it a national holiday, though none of our emails have received a reply from the Queen as of yet. We at the Other Press remain hopeful.
As with many, my New Beard’s resolution is simple: to not shave again until Movember 1.
