Beard Liberation Front says no need to trim beards or take down Xmas Decs until Feb 2nd

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has strongly urged the hirsute not to trim beards that were worn over Christmas until Candlemas on 2nd February.

While January 6th is a traditional time for Christmas decorations to be taken down and beards trimmed for the New Year the campaigners say that in fact Christian tradition provides for neither to happen until Candlemas on 2nd February.

The Christian tradition built on earlier ones including St Brigid, a festival of light and the coming of Spring.

The campaigners say that February 2nd will be a more appropriate time to trim a full winter organic beard in 2021

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, with many people staying at home in lockdown there is no need now to trim a winter beard during January. Further this is fully in line with tradition when such things didn’t happen until Candlemas.
