What is Entertaiment?



Entertainment is a kind of enjoyment and leisure activity. It is usually associated with leisure activities such as play, sports, and music. It can also be seen as an aspect of highbrow growth through such media as theater, literature, or film. However, it is worth remembering that what entertains for one person may not be entertainment for another (e.g. a rite, party, non secular pageant, or satire) and that what seems to be entertainment may also serve a more extreme purpose (e.g. a form of escapist entertainment). The word entertaintment is derived from Middle English entretenement.
