Brobdingnagian Proboscis Day

December 28, 2021

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day 28 of December, repeating indefinitely

December 28
First occurrence:
On this day in 1897 “Cyrano de Bergerac”, a play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand, premiered at the Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin.
This play became a notable piece of pop culture to influence many media later on.
While many people know the name Cyrano de Bergerac from this play, not many people know that the character of Cyrano was loosely based on an actual Cyrano de Bergerac who lived from 1619 – 1655 and who was well known for being one of the first writers of science fiction.
Celebrate big noses and colorful words today.
