HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Lefties can give themselves a hand.

Thursday is officially International Left-Handers Day, according to NationalDayCalendar.com.

In a right handed world, Aug. 13 is reserved for lefties.

Scientists said 10 percent of the world’s population is left-handed. Though they still can’t figure out why it happens.

However, they do believe that if a person is left-handed, their children will probably be the same.

The day was coined in 1922, NationalDayCalendar said. It originated in the United Kingdom.
