National Sunglasses Day

National Sunglasses Day

Elton John owns over a thousand pairs. Canadian singer Corey Hart wears only one at night. You can tell which good guys are from which bad by the shapes of theirs in The Matrix. You ask? You’re talking about sunglasses! Nothing is more stylish than a pair of shades. So get your wayfarers out and celebrate National Sunglasses Day!

While the origins of National Sunglasses Day remain a mystery, sunglasses have a long history dating back to 14th-century China. Judges used smoke-coloured quartz eyewear to hide their emotions. Now, fast forward 600 years. Modern sunglasses as we know it today were first introduced by Sam Foster on Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Remember that sunglasses can also protect your eyes against harmful UV light. So, let’s channel our inner-cooler and don those shades on National Sunglasses Day
