If you are right-handed, try writing with your left hand for a few hours on Tuesday.

But if you are left-handed, just kick back and relax because today is all about you.

International Lefthanders Day is observed every year on Aug. 13.

According to, the day was established in 1992 in the United Kingdom.

It pays tribute to all those hard-working left-handed people out there who have to put up with the bias of a mostly right-handed world.

Some famous left handers include: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Isaac Newton.
