Home dels Nassos

Home dels nassos (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈɔmə ðəlz ˈnasus]; "Man of the noses") is a character in Catalan myths and legends. The legend says that this man has as many noses as the year has days, and loses one every day and can only be seen on December 31st. In this way, children of Catalonia are led to believe that there is a man with 365 noses, and they are asked to search him on last day of the year. Being the last day of the year, he has only one nose remaining, the rest have been already lost.[1]
