Posted on 12th August 2021


Wikipedia says:

International Lefthanders Day was created to celebrate *sinistrality ( *the quality or state of having the left side or one or more of its parts, as the hand or eye, different from and usually more efficient than the right or its corresponding parts also : left-handedness) and raise awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed in a predominantly right-handed world.

It celebrates left-handed people’s uniqueness and differences, a subset of humanity comprising seven to ten percent of the world’s population. The day also spreads awareness on issues faced by left-handers, e.g. the importance of the special needs for left-handed children.
