What is Entertaiment?

Article about Entertaiment

Something that holds and keeps the attention of a group of people, gives pleasure and delight, or entertains. It may be an idea or a task, but it is more likely to be one of the activities that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping an audience’s attention. A clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—these are all forms of entertainment. From Old French entretenir, based on the Latin inter-, prefix meaning “inside” or “within,” and tenere, derived from the Indo-European root ten, which means to hold or support.
