T’is the season to be jolly and there will be lots of people with whiskers and red coats around spreading Christmas cheer. However if you want to wear that beautiful red dress but have whiskers on your lip or chin you will feel too self conscious to have a very merry Christmas. Why not treat yourself to a consultation for Permanent hair removal so that you can arrange to become whisker free in the New Year.
While we are talking about facial hair, probably the most famous beard we ever seen is the fluffy white beard worn by Father Christmas during the holiday season. Let’s get into the Christmas groove by looking at some interesting facts about Santa Claus:-
- Father Christmas looks the way he does because Clement. C. Moore wrote the poem, ‘A Visit From St Nicholas’, more commonly known as, ‘The Night Before Christmas’. In it he described what Santa looks like:-
His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
- Coca Cola are said to have been the first people to show Father Christmas wearing red and white, in 1931, but apparently he had already appeared in red before the advert.
- He is based on an actual person called Saint Nicholas who is also patron saint of sailors. Saint Nicholas was the Bishop of Myra used to leave anonymous gifts and dowries to families in their shoes. This all happened in 270 AD.
- He is said to have nine reindeer :- Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Vixen, Dasher, Comet, Cupid, Blitzen and of course Rudolph who guides the sleigh with his bright red nose.
We all want to be as kind and generous as Father Christmas and after lots of festive treats we will have wobbly bellies, but ladies do you really want whiskers that could make even Santa jealous?
