What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an activity that provides pleasure, amusement, or distraction. It may include activities such as playing games or sports; attending performances, such as theatre, music or dance; watching television, film or video; and participating in social or leisure activities with friends or family members. The concept of entertainment is varied and can encompass anything from ceremonial or religious festivals, satire and humor to the arts such as painting, sculpture, writing and music. It can also mean the process of converting something into an enjoyable activity, such as cooking. Entertainment can be on any scale, from an individual choice of entertainment from a now extensive range of pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for two; or an event staged for thousands, or even a global audience.
