Beard Championships held in Moscow, Russia, entertainment news
Beard Day, held every April 6, is a tradition in Russia. The fifth annual Russian Beard & Moustache Championships ended last Saturday in Moscow.

In 1698, Tsar Peter the Great wanted to introduce European law and order in the Russian Empire, so he signed a decree which ordered beards to be shaven across the country. Those who refused were punished with a fine.
The tax was removed by Catherine the Great (reigned 1762-1796) 74 years later, on April 6, 1772.
So every April 6 is now Beard Day in Russia.
