ENG: Who or What is the Moixó Foguer

The Moixó Foguer is a fantasy creature which originally comes from Valls. In the early evening on Carnival Saturday, his followers (all dressed in white night gowns) take him around Vilanova i la Geltrú in a small procession. Every once in a while they stop and the Moixó Foguer jumps up from his box and spreads feathers in the air.
