Since 1397 the small town of Béjar, Spain, has held up an intriguing tradition with the festival of “Los Hombres de Musgo”.  The story goes that the Christian population reconquered the town from the “Moros” by camouflaging themselves with moss.  They then crawled through the surrounding landscape unseen by the lookouts on the city walls.  When they finally arrived at the city gates their sudden, monstrous appearance completely surprised and overwhelmed the guards.
