What Is Entertaiment?



Entertaining is a broad term and the subject matter encompasses anything from a personal choice of entertainment from a vast array of pre-recorded products to banquets adapted for two; from celebration or ceremony of any sort to religious festival, and from satire to the theater and the many forms of performance. Although entertaining has come to be strongly associated with amusement, it is not necessarily so; entertainment may also serve other purposes, such as intellectual growth or insight. The familiar forms of entertainment have demonstrated a remarkable ability to cross over different media and to retain their relevance for long periods of time.
