Redheads & Freckles Fun Facts

   I started out life with glow in the dark orange hair. It made me stand out like a sore thumb. Being the target of everyone’s (jealous) folly, I soon became defensive, then down right pugnacious. With time my hair mellowed, and so did I. As with everything that slips away, I now have a greater appreciation for red hair, thus this web site and my interest in photographing kindred spirits.

  As for freckles, I’ve got them big time. The only way you get freckles (angel kisses) is to earn them by over exposure to the sun (sun burn). If you think redheads are rare, wait a generation or so. With all the concern with ultraviolet radiation freckles may vanish from sight.

So,,,if you have red hair & or freckle, flaunt it!!!!!!

  Some say the red gene we carry has been passed down from the Picts, original inhabitants of Scotland, & Ireland. Others feel it was folks like Eric the Red who did a marvelous job of spreading the wealth through out Europe and the Mediterranean.

  Our red gene will skip a generation or two. Mother Nature knows how special we are, and doesn’t want to ruin a good thing.

If you’re a redhead, then you are in fine company. Here is a short list of some of our kin. Do you have a suggestion for this list please e-mail and I will add it. 

Hi there,
I'm a redheaded/freckle faced fourteen-year-old and I stumbled upon your funky site today. I saw your list of famous redheads and I thought you might like to add Sir Thomas Henry Kavanagh. He was one of the first civilians to ever be rewarded with the Victorian Cross for his bravery in one of the British wars. If you'd like to look him up, he's in Wikipedia and other various sites such as this: - He's actually my great, great grandfather (we're pretty sure it's only two 'greats' but we've no idea really). Anyway, I think he's an awesome redhead! Good luck with your website =]
