Monday 27th June 2016 : beard banter

National Beard Week 2016 by Beard Emoji

#NationalBeardWeek is an annual event founded in 1995 by Keith Flett, who campaigns in support of beards and opposes discrimination against those who wear them.

Too bad there isn't a beard emoji (yet) to use during this week, right?!

This week consists of several awards, including Hirsute Personality, Beard Friendly Sandwich, Hirsute Broadcaster, Pogonophobe of the Year (naming the biggest beard hater of the year), Beard Friendly Employer and Beard of Summer 2016 leading up to Beard of the Year in December which coincides nicely with #Decembeard.

Don't forget to sign the Beard Emoji petition to help get us noticed and you never know, we all might have a beard emoji for the next global event... World Beard Day on Saturday 3rd September 2016.
