Left Handers, also commonly referred to as Southpaws, are the brunt of more than their share of jokes all year long. How do I know? Yup, you guessed it! It ain't easy being a leftie. But those of us who are, would have it no other way. Lefties are proud of it.
The world is built for right handers. Examples are everywhere. For example:
Did you Know? Right handed people operate in the left side of the brain. Left handed people use the right side. Therefore, only left handed people are in their right mind.
Left Hander's certainly earned the right to have a day dedicated to them. August 13th is that day. Take a minute to appreciate your left handed friends and loved ones. Don't forget to send them a Left Handed Day Ecard to show your respect.
Remember today and every day: "Lefties have rights!"

History and Origin of Left Hander's Day
Dean R. Campbell, founder of Left Handers International, created this special day. It was first celebrated on August 13, 1976.
There is some false reference on the Internet, suggesting that Left Hander's Day is in January. It seemed to appear around 2010-2012. This is incorrect. We suspect someone wanted to create this day in January, but did not do their homework to find out that it already exists.
There is also one or two sites that call it "National Left Handers Day". These references began around 2017, and are incorrect. The celebration of Left Handers is a world wide event.
