Sunglasses have many names around the world - in Australia they're known as spekkies, in Scotland they're glecks, and in India they're glares. Or you might hear them called sun cheaters, or teashades, or glints.
The most expensive pair of sunglasses ever sold on EBay were Elvis Presley's - for $250,000!
Every 14 seconds someone loses, breaks or sits on a pair of glasses in the U.S.
Sunglasses come in every size, shade, style and color you can think of - probably even MORE than you can think of. But more than a fashion statement, they help protect our eyes from the bright Colorado sun.
Colorado is known for having more days of sun than most other states in the country, after all. You won't be the first to wear sunglasses - they've existed since the 12th century. But the eyes they'll be shading are the most important eyes in the world - YOUR eyes!
