International Left-Handers Day falls on August 13th of each year and is devoted to the uniqueness of left-handed people. This celebration acknowledges the difficulty of being left-handed in a world designed for right-handers. 10% of the population is left-handed, so the day promotes awareness of the difficulties of being left-handed and the need to design left-handed friendly items.

Although this holiday was first proposed in 1976, it wasn’t until the Lefthanders International Organization (LIO) made Left-Hander’s Day official in 1992 that it began to gain international popularity. LIO proclaimed it as a day devoted to the trials of the left-handed to showcase the need for more left-handed choices. Everything from scissors to computer mice to cars with a stick shift is designed for the comfort of right-handed people; a day devoted to left-handers raises awareness of the challenges of living in a world not designed with them in mind.

How to Celebrate Left-Handers Day

Do you have a left-handed person in your life, or are you one? Here are some suggestions to celebrate your favorite lefty. If you are right-handed, treat your left-handed loved ones to coffee or dinner. You could also challenge yourself by using your left hand throughout your day to see what it’s like to walk in their left-handed shoes. Another option is to educate others on the difficulty of being left-handed. Left-handers require an adjustment that right-handers don’t, so use #LeftHandersDay to show them you care.
