This year we decided to do countdown of Spook-tac-ular Shades for Halloween or Day of The Dead. The challenge is on to Seek New Scary Shades for one of the biggest holidays in the world.
Today we are starting out with Bats. Bats are notorious spooky creatures that surround caves, witches and warlocks.
