Left Handers Club Backwards Calendar

Each year we produce a “backwards” calendar running from right to left as a lot of people seem to enjoy it and ask for it. Like anti-clockwise watches, lefthanders find it a lot easier to read than right-handers so it is nice to confuse them! Use the links below to download the Backwards calendar in various formats. (click here if Sunday starts your week)

2016 Calendar with Sunday starting the week

We have had a lot of people telling us that having calendars starting the week on a Monday (which is the normal format in the UK) is not the same worldwide and in the USA and other places it is standard to have Sunday as the first day of the week. See our article about which day starts the week here.

    Dear Sirs,

    I have always enjoyed your Left-Handed Calendars but it has taken me a few years to realize they all have a serious error. While the calendar dates are backwards the spelling of the calendar and the months are not. I think for the calendar to really be a true left-handed calendar, EVERYTHING should be backwards, oops, strike that – everything should run

    Hi Keith,
    I too like to confuse the Righties.
    I’m a L/H Woodturner. Not sure if I have said this before, but I believe that the Wood Lathe was made by a L/Hander for the Left Handers.
    Reason is that we stand in the centre of The Lathe,to Turn, where as the Righties have the Head Stock to contend with.
    Well that is what I Preach.
    Love It.

    Surely clocks that circle the other way can be described as going Widdershins?

    Hear Hear Kieth!We do indeed speak English not the American version of English. When American websites start to cater for English clients and start using English terminology ( pavement for sidewalk or boot for trunk, trousers for pants etc ) then ONLY then should we start reciprocating. Whilst our language is adaptable, it should not be subsumed by an, admittedly related, foreign language. Stick to your guns.Love the calendar, it’s so easy to use and confuses all the right handers where I work. David
