Movember's back!

Why says nothing happens between Halloween and Christmas but frantic shopping? Well, actually November has become one of our favorite months of the year here at ApLingo. Thank you Movember!
Did you know that the word "moustache" is French, and is derived from the Italian mostaccio (14th century), from Medieval Latin mustacium (8th century) which ultimately originates as a diminutive of Hellenistic Greek μύσταξ (mustax, mustak-), meaning "upper lip" or "facial hair".
Our ancestors from the Neolithic times were technologically able to shave with sharpened stones, but the oldest portrait showing a shaved man with a moustache is an ancient Scythian horseman from 300 BCE.

Various cultures have developed different associations with moustaches. Most of them are linked to virility, power or religious traditionalism.

Having learned a few facts about facial hair, the team would like to support and thank our generous colleagues who support the event. Can’t wait to see how they turn out!
