shia labeouf beard gi National No Beard Day: Shave it off, Shia LaBeoufOnce a year, on Oct. 18 apparently, we pause to celebrate the smooth skin that can only be created by a clean, close shave. That’s right, Tuesday is National No Beard Day — the day when men (mostly) are asked to shave off their facial hair. You know, just in time for winter and cooler temps because that makes loads of sense.

We’re not sure Ron Swanson would approve, but we’ve assembled a gallery full of celebs — including Shia LaBeouf, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Ian Somerhalder — who have sported both bare and hairy faces. Take a spin through and decide for yourself which look you prefer.

And for anyone keeping track of inane, yet entertaining holidays that result in zero time off from work, this week is chock full of them: Oct. 19 is National Seafood Bisque Day, Oct. 20 celebrate National Brandied Fruit Day and Friday, Oct. 21, is not only Count Your Buttons Day (what does that even mean?) but also Reptile Awareness Day.

You can thank us later.
