Have a wonderful WORLD BEARD DAY today ~ Saturday 7th September 2013
Celebrate World Beard Day 2013 on the 7th September at The Annandale Hotel with The BEARDS, The Stiffys, Manchoir, Atlas B Salvesen, and hosted by bearded Dave Callan.
The timing of of World Beard Day correlates with the same month when the tragic historic event of death by beard happened in September 1567, when Hans Steininger (aka Hanns Staininger) an Austrian mayor famous for having the world’s longest beard (3.5 feet / 1.06m long) died because of it 446 years ago on the 28th September 1567. The tragic incident occurred when there was a fire in his town of Braunau, and in his haste Hans forgot to roll up his beard and place it in a purposely placed pouch for his beard, which caused him to accidentally step on it, fall and break his neck, thus being killed by his famous beard. Legend tells of an invitation to Hans Steininger from the Emperor Rudolf II in Prague to see his extraordinary beard, due to beard envy and inspiration, as he was having problems growing a beard (see photo) back in the 16th century, as now seen with Andy Lee in the 21st century.
