Champagne: very light redheads
Strawberry blonde: light reddish blonde
Red: range of light, bright, metallic and shiny red
Auburn: dark red

Greece is one of country that admires redheads believed so because of their believed mythical qualities. Italy has well known painting with redheads.

Adults have about 120,000 hairs on their head; redheads have fewer, blondes have more, brunettes have the most..

The first human redheads walked this earth about 50,000 years ago in Africa and then spread throughout Northern Europe.

Bees are thought to sting redheads more than others.

In Denmark it is an honor to have a redheaded child.

I never heard that bees like redheads, but that explans why I always get stung (I was stung in a library once!)
I have heard redhead have a higher tolerance for pain. To this my husband likes to tell the story of when I started having contractions. I told him in a perfectly normal voice and while packing up (my water had broken) I think that was a contraction.

Wow...my son is 6 too and I think he's been stung every yr since he was about 2!...I wonder if the bees are just attracted to that red hair the same as they are the most colorful flowers? May sound a little corny but it sorta makes sense.
