Sunglasses
Contest Directions: June 27 every year is known as Sunglasses Day. The date was chosen because at the end of June the summer is in full swing, and the sun is high in the sky, and we all need sunglasses to protect our eyes. Smoke tinted glasses were invented before 1430 in China. But, they weren't for sun protection. Judges wore them in court so nobody could see their eyes and guess their opinion before a verdict was declared. Sunglasses as we know them today are a 20th century phenomenon. In the 1930s, the military commissioned glasses that would protect pilots from sun glare. But, they didn't become a real fad until the 1960s when an ad campaign said... "Who's Behind those Foster Grants?". Enjoy Sunglasses Day with a shady, mysterious and fashionable pair of sunglasses (some early Elton John's sunglasses come to mind)!
To celebrate Sunglasses Day at Freaking News, add any kinds of sunglasses to works of art and movies.
