What is Entertaiment?



Entertaiment | Merriam-Webster
From the Latin enertaint to hold together or support, entertainment is anything that amuses us or diverts our attention. A clown at a child’s birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—all of these are forms of entertainment. Entertaiment can be theatrical or visual, such as a show or art, or audio, like music. It can be private entertainment for one person or for a group, such as a dinner for two, or public entertainment for thousands. Entertaiment also includes activities that help children grow and develop and prepare them for adulthood, such as playing games (7).
