What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an activity that is intended to amuse, or to entertain, or to provide excitement, or to create a mood or ambience. It can also be a social activity. It can range from a one-to-one private entertainment chosen from the now huge variety of pre-recorded media, to a banquet that is adapted for two, to performances for thousands and even global audiences. Some activities, such as archery or fencing, may have originally been used in hunting or war, but have now become spectator sports. Entertainment can also be a means of social or intellectual growth, as in ceremony, celebration, religious festivals or satire.
