What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a wide area that includes everything from an individual’s choice of pre-recorded entertainment to a banquet adapted for two; from a private party or performance for a group to an entire city’s celebration or religious festival. Although often associated with lightness and amusement, entertainment can also be serious in its intent and may take the form of ceremony, celebration, ritual, sporting event, satire or social criticism. Even activities that were once used for hunting or war have evolved into spectator sports. Entertaiment also encompasses the play of children, which is a vital part of their growth and development.
