The purpose of this article is to interrogate the processes of a significant moment of the annual ceremonial cycle: the carnival in Vilariño de Conso, Galicia, named entroido. My argument is based on the need of looking at what results from the current ethnography, inserting it into a long cycle. It focuses on the transformations of the relationship with laughter at these ceremonies, and I propose five moments, which intersect general time and local time, rituality and conjunctures. It is part of a extensive fieldwork revisiting the entroidos, which starts from ethnographies produced by different ethnographers at different times, and which runs from the 1980s to the present, in a area that covers the northern interior of Portugal and Galicia.
