Every day is a national day of something. Rarely is it something that ZZ Top has dedicated a hit song to.

Today is National Sunglasses Day. The Vision Council uses this day to remind us all to protector ourselves against harmful UV rays as we spend more time outdoors.

In order to celebrate, you'll first need a nice pair of shades. I picked these up at a gas station the day I moved to Amarillo.

Then, just take a selfie and be sure to use the hashtags #SunglassSelfie and #NationalSunglassesDay.

At the National Sunglasses Day website, it actually looks like we're pretty "ok" when it comes to the threat of harmful UV rays compared to other areas. That should not, however, stop you from packing your pair when you hit the canyon this weekend for that hike.
