I got a watch for christmas?

Traditionally the wristwatch is worn on the left hand so that you could wind it up or change the time using your right hand. That would be impossible to do is you wore it on your right wrist and tried to change the time with your left - you'd need to remove it. But with digital watches it's a different matter now. And it makes sense for left handed people to wear them on their right wrist.
