What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a form of amusement, recreation, or distraction. It may range from an individual’s choice of entertainment media (now enormously varied), to banquets adapted for two, to performances designed for thousands. Many forms of entertainment have come to be associated with amusement and fun, but they can also serve serious purposes, such as ceremonial rituals, religious festivals, or political satire.
