Left-Handers Day

The International Left-Handers Day was celebrated on August 13 all over the world. This day has been celebrated annually since 1992. It’s a day that raises awareness about the issues that left-handed people have to deal with.

It’s also a day when left-handers celebrate being left-handed. Approximately 10% of the world’s population is left-handed. For all our left-handed readers, here is a tutorial for the popular cup song.
