Happy Movember? Yep – November is also known as Movember. When doing some research on what November commemorates (i.e. American Diabetes Awareness Month, National Family Caregivers Month), I found out about Movember. It is taken from the combination of the words Moustache and November. Movember is an annual event, which takes place in November, where men grow moustaches all month to raise awareness of prostate cancer, as well as other male cancers.
A quote from Wikipedia: “By encouraging men (“Mo Bros“) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides getting an annual check-up, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of any family history of cancer, and to adopt a more healthy lifestyle.”[
There’s even a website: www.movember.com.
- Once registered at movember.com each mo bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face.
- For the entire month of November each mo bro must grow and groom a moustache.
- There is to be no joining of the mo to [one’s] sideburns. (That’s considered a beard.)
- There is to be no joining of the handlebars to [one’s] chin. (That’s considered a goatee.)
- Each mo bro must conduct himself like a true country gentleman.
