Social behaviour
•Passing or pouring wine with the left hand leads to bad luck.
•A left-handed toast is tantamount to a curse on the victim.
•Driving on the left – started so that horse riders could use their whips in the right-hand to fend off other road users – see more about this

Religion
•Christianity is strongly based towards the right hand. It is the right had that gives the blessing and make the sign of the cross.
•On one count, the bible contains over 100 favourable reference to the right-hand and 25 unfavourable references to the left-hand. E.g.: The right hand of the lord doeth valiantly, the right hand of the lord is exalted (Psalm 118 vv15,16)
•The left hand does worst in the parable of the sheep and goats. The sheep are set on Christ’s right hand and the goats on the left. Those on the right inherit the kingdom of god while those on the let depart into everlasting fire.
