What is Entertaiment?

About this article

Entertaiment is a versatile concept, ranging from a single individual choosing his or her own personal entertainment from an enormous array of pre-recorded products; to a banquet designed for two; to any size or type of party and appropriate music and dancing; to performances intended for thousands. Entertainment has become strongly associated with amusement, but many of its forms have a more serious purpose, whether in the form of ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or satire.
