It's a phenomenon known as "No Shave November," or, as Urban Dictionary puts it, "the month of November in which you don't shave any hair on your body but instead you grow more bestial, brutish and manly." The origins of this craze are disputed, but it has become a staple for men at numerous college campuses across the nation.
The months of the year are defined in our minds in many different ways. June for the hot sun and days spent on the lake, December for holidays and family, May for the ending of school and blooming of trees-- and November for the grizzled, unkept beards on the faces of men.
