No Shave November...

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

No Shave November...

Post by JMG » Thu Nov 25, 2010 12:43 pm

Anybody else taking part in this? I am, and have for some years now. I don't grow the greatest facial hair, but I feel this a worthy enough "man" cause. (Jake...on behalf of your husband please continue to shave your legs :lol: ) Just wondering if anyone else is taking part?

I'll post pictures at the end of the month...though it's nothing spectacular.

Right on man. Once we get to the tribe I think I'll go a whole year maybe...at least six months. But for now, I speak at too many churches to let it go that long. But my hat is off to you, good sir.

I quit shaving about 3 months ago. I grew a beard when I was in Europe this summer, and then shaved it when I got home. But about 3 months ago I realized how freaking awesome it was not to shave. Now i just trim every couple of weeks.

I envy you guys. My job requires neatly trimmed facial hair. Otherwise, I'd love to grow a Grizzly Adams.

I look silly with facial hair, and it itches like a rash, so NSN is out of the picture.

Well for me it's more like October to February. Then it's down to a goatee for a few months, then a 'stache, then clean shaven. Then start all over.

I do like to keep my chops and gotee, but not shaving?!?!?! I think I'd go insane not building a lather, massaging it onto my face, and then feeling my smooth skin afterwards.

I've participated in No Shave November for a few years now, which for me is more along the lines of, 'no trim around the edges November' since I sport a year round beard...but I do trim it down pretty close every now and then.

I've got a pretty good head start for this year. Last year I kept it going through December.

Any one else?

My beard is almost 25 years old. Except for one day, but that was an ill advised mistake. I regularly trim it down to about 1/2" inch.

Me too. I sport a year round form of mustache\goatee so this is just an extension. I've got to say though, it's coming in all patchy and white. 8O Wasn't this bad last year.

I had a beard last year for the first time in my life.
When I shaved it off, my wife admitted to me that she liked me better without it.

Good enough for me - off it stays.

But I’ll hang onto some photos as keepsakes...
