Some Inspiring Holiday Eyeglasses

Meet Francisco de Quevedo y Villegas (18580-1645), a Spanish writer and politician of the Baroque period especially known for his poetry. And as you can see,  he was also known for his eyeglasses. Unfortunately, they are very plain - not a bit decorative or artistic. Poor Francisco! No wonder he looks so stern and out of sorts.

When he wrote "my heart, for beauty eagerly athirst" he really didn't mean he wanted to see some lady's "abundant tresses." No, I am sure that he really meant that he wanted some colorful new eyeglass frames. For us glasses wearers - Spanish baroque poets and modern folks alike - a new set of frames is as pleasing as a perfectly rhymed couplet.

Too bad Francisco was born a few centuries too early to get in on ZenniOptical's holiday frames event. But you are luckier by far:

Holiday themed eyeglasses frames from ZenniOptical are here for the season, in all kinds of festive colors and designs - all at Zenni's all-year-round excellent prices. So why not visit ZenniOptical.com and check out all the cute glasses they have that will show your holiday cheer and spirit!

I would love to buy these Christmas tree frames for all the glasses-wearers in my family. I think everyone would love some sunglasses with these frames for all those walks we like to take - even when it's really cold out. And with all the money I'd save on these holiday frames, I could also buy them some books to read with their new glasses, too. Do check out these and the other ZenniOptical holiday frames and let me know in the comments which ones you like the best. And who knows? These Christmas tree glasses might even inspire some poetry, too.
