What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the activity of presenting or providing diversion, relaxation, recreation, and pleasure to others. Entertainment is a broad concept that can include anything from a play, concert or party to a video game or sporting event. In modern times, the experience of being entertained has become strongly associated with leisure, so that it is not uncommon for people to equate entertainment with humor and laughter, even though many forms of entertainment may also have a serious purpose, such as within the various styles of rite, celebration, non secular pageant or satire for example.

From Late Middle English entretenement, from enter- “among” + tenir “to hold” (from Latin tenere); a common suffix forming nouns from verb stems in -ment such as amazement, betterment and merriment.
