I was just wondering why I can’t enchant shears in Minecraft? I need to enchant my shears. It makes me sad :(

In java, unless things have changed (you don't metion platform or version), shears can be enchanted with Mending, Unbreaking, and Efficiency. (qv. https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Shears#Enchantments )
[Also Curse of Vanishing, but why would one…]

At least in the versions before MS/Mj decided to grief iron farms, adding any of these would probably be a waste unless one had a very large vine farm or sheep station and wanted to be able to complete a harvest without carrying multiples.
[Hypothetically, one could also rig a circulating sheep wool farm to be harvested where the Xp from a dog-kill skeleton farm kept the shears repaired thus allowing theoretically infinite AFK wool production, but this seems an unlikely thing to build.]

You can only "enchant" shear by using anvils combine it with enchanted books.

It's the enchantment that's your problem. I think you can only have Unbreaking on it, maybe Mending. I don't know about any others that work.

i thought at one point you could
also i'm not 100% sure, but i don't think this is blog material, and stuff like this should probably be left for the forums, or even a wall post
although srsly what happened to enchanted shears
