This “holiday” was created in 1992 by the Left-Handers Club. The Club’s purpose is to celebrate left-handers while demonstrating the challenges left-handers face each and every day.

If a “lefty zone” exists in your city, you can enjoy your day as a lefty by visiting this. Everyday objects are adapted for use by left-handed people. You can show your right-handed friends how hard it can be to use an object not made for you.
