Thanksgiving Is All About Big Birds & Big Beards

You love Thanksgiving, we love Thanksgiving. It’s really the perfect holiday. Unlike other holidays where you are expected to go out and buy gifts and decorate your house, for Thanksgiving you just eat a bunch of food till you nod off on the couch watching football or a lifetime movie, which ever floats your boat. It’s pretty awesome.

Unfortunately there are plenty of misconceptions that surround Thanksgiving. Many historians will tell you that the Pilgrims did not wear all black with buckles, more into orange and brown — and, yes, buckles; and the bird served was probably goose or duck, not turkey. Anyway, there are loads of other places to learn about that. But what we at Bluebeards find to be the biggest misconception is the way Pilgrims are often depicted as being beardless.

Wait a minute … which one is the woman now?

Nope. Sorry, but the Pilgrims were actually rocking some serious facial hair.

Check out our man Myles Standish, the leader of the Pilgrims

Hey, didn’t I see that guy place in the beard contest in Vegas?

Historians will tell you most of the guys on the Mayflower had beards. We tend to think more of them would have survived too if they had kept them clean with our Bluebeards Beard Wash and Conditioner, but hey, as long as we’ve been around (since 2005!), we are still a few centuries too late to help them out.

It’s never too late to get in the TDAY spirit, though, so grab some Beard Saver, grow one, and give thanks. Just make sure you throw some Beard Wash into that beard: gravy is not a good conditioner.

Seriously though, thank you to all you great beardos out there who support Bluebeards throughout the year, we have the best customers in the world.

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
