Left Handers Club Backwards Calendar 2020

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.

2020 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.

    This is brilliant, thank you , I had the 2019 calendar backwards and I can use this far better than a forward calendar, any day. At times I wished I had a left-handed keyboard as I most of the times hit the Y key rayher than the T key. As you I did then, rather should I say. As the going says, “Us Left-Handers are the only ones in our right minds” 😉

    I am a parent of 7 children 2 are left handed, I am also a teacher that has worked with age groups that vary from infant to school age. I have learned that teaching a child that is left handed is only possible when you understand the world is designed for right handed people. My eldest left handed child made me challenge myself and think about why she struggled to read and write. When I once I taught myself to see the world as she does, I was able to understand how their brains function!So many of our kids think they aren’t capable of learning, but the fact is they are really left handed so their brain is working double time in this right handed world!!!

    the Sunday week start calendar is still linking to 2018 not 2019

    Excellent idea for those that need it. I don’t find it hard with a normal calendar, but know for sure, when I read a magazine, I always start at the last page. I just have to page backwards, very frustrating, as what if the article or story commenced on the page before. I’m OK with novels though. Strange.?? Lucky – otherwise I would see the end first. Oh, our left-handed brains! But who of you are very artistic ! I am, as well as my 2 left-handed children. That’s a blessing indeed. Even though we can’t use a vegetable peeler between the 3 of us!

    “(see below for the original Excel versions of the file that you can edit and also for other options)” – I tried, but couldn’t see it!

    (I want to make one with a yellow background, since our company’s standard one comes out on yellow card [I could just print it on the back of one of those], and also remove the LH wording, so people don’t realise until they try to read/use it!)

    Thank you I love this

    This is brilliant, it is a bid fun to use it, thanks for your great ideas

  12. Suzie Ridgley says:

    Please don’t call this a backwards calendar. It is not backwards to a leftie. Just because righties are in the majority does not mean their way is automatically the only or right way. Please just call this a leftie calendar. It is not at all backward to me.

  13. Makaita says:

    im really liking the backward calender its dope

  14. Christine says:

    Dear Keith, My week starts with Sunday because I am a Christian and we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on the first day of the week which for us is Sunday. See Luke 24 in the New Testament of the Bible.

    I’m having problems using a knife for my feet because the blade comes out all the time and I have to use the blade on it’s own which is somewhat dangerous! Do you know of a universal knife? Thanks.

    At age 66 I sometimes find it difficult to adapt to left-handed items because I’ve used right-handed ones for so long but am glad they are available esp for children. Thanks for the calendar.

  15. Jacqueline Cook says:

    I love the calendar….it drives my co-workers crazy trying to figure out the days…keep up the good work.

  18. Michelle says:

    I love this cause I do things backwards ppl say and ever since I was a baby my Uncle has called me crawfish lol I love being a lefty

  19. Duncan Pohl says:

    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.

    I’m so excited to be part of this group which I’m sure has amazin, unique, loving people wit awesome personalities!!! Lookin forward to our next lefty adventure lol. Have a fantastic day my brothers & sisters!

  22. stefany says:

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

  23. David Duffee says:

    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
