Facial Hair February

With the exception of Valentines Day and the Super Bowl, the month of February is pretty much uneventful. In an effort to revitalize the four weeks between January and March, Facial Hair February was created.
Beards, nature's contraceptive
Especially in February

We already have Floctober, Movember, Decembeard and Manuary and now we get F.H. February for guys to demonstrate their ability to grow hair on their faces. The rules of F.H. February are simple; the participants must fully shave their face by 10am on the morning of February 1st and then grow a beard. The optional charity tie-in is permitted and in some cases essential, to convince employers of the legitimacy of the event.

The origin of these fiestas of facial furriness is unclear. Some theories point to the men of the colder states growing winter beards to keep warm, while others suggest that the events were created by men who just couldn't be bothered to shave every day and needed an excuse so that they didn't get fired.

therefore 'Jo' makes the W sound)
If you need to explain it, it's not funny ! !

Opposition to these events comes mainly from wives and girlfriends, and men who can only grow patchy thin beards. Shaving off the beard before the month's end calls into question the manliness of the participant even more so than patchy or limited growth, especially if it is due to 'spousal' pressure.
