What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment means fun and enjoyment, but it is a very flexible concept that can encompass any number of activities. It can be as simple as selecting a single pre-recorded piece of entertainment for personal use, as elaborate as a banquet adapted for two, or as large as a public performance. It can be lighthearted, as in a comedy or a play, or have a deeper significance as in ceremonies, religious festivals, or political satire.

Entertainment can be a powerful stress-buster and a way to escape from the everyday. It can also be a source of learning and intellectual challenge, and it allows people to experience a variety of emotions in a controlled setting, providing catharsis and emotional cleansing.
