Protect Your Eyes, Have Fun In The Sun. #National Sunglasses Day.

I viewed this on the Tube this AM, Trending on Twitter today. But is also a time to remind people the reasons why you should be wearing Sunglasses.  I am from the baby boomer generation. We were not educated in the harmful rays of the sun.  Baby oil and a burn were your initial sunbathing rules in the 60’s at the Seashore of the Northeast in Philly, Playland and Boulevard Pools. No sunglasses either. As a single digit jock in Kensington, McVeigh Recreation Center was one of my frequent playgrounds as it had a pool, the Swimo.  My Grandmom and Uncle Emil lived across the Street and my Aunt Sue, Uncle George, cousins Georgie and Marjorie, one block away.  Going down memory lane here. It was a wonderful neighborhood to grow up as a child. Also, Holiday Lake, Burlington county NJ, Took the bus from Philly.

Below I have also included the music video, Sunglasses At Night. Enjoy.

National Ice Cream Day, July 19.

Via IDFA

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

My favorite is Ben and Jerry’s  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

National Sunglasses Day, June 27.

Via The Vision Council

Every day—whether it’s sunny or cloudy, summer or winter—millions of Americans make the conscious decision to not wear sunglasses or other ultraviolet (UV)-protective eyewear. While seemingly harmless, this habit carries serious vision risks, many of which are not known or understood by those who fail to wear protective eyewear.

UV radiation is often recognized as the culprit for sunburns and skin cancer but most people are oblivious to the damaging impact the wavelengths inflict on our vision. The problem originates with the sun’s unfiltered ultraviolet (UV) rays. Just as these rays can burn skin cells, they can also harm unprotected eyes. A full day outside without protection can cause immediate, temporary issues such as swollen or red eyes and hypersensitivity to light. Years of cumulative exposure can cause cancer of the eye or eyelid, accelerate conditions like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

National Sunglasses Day is held annually on June 27. It is not only an observance but a reminder that our shades are a health necessity and it is important to wear sunglasses or other UV-protective eyewear every day to protect long-term eye health.
