What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is any activity that provides amusement, relaxation, diversion or pleasure. It may involve any kind of play or recreation, from playing games to performing in a theatre or on a stage, reading books, watching movies or TV, attending concerts or parties and socializing with friends. Entertainment is often associated with the idea of fun and laughter, but it can also have a serious purpose. For example, the story of Scheherazade from Persian professional storytelling tradition has been retold as music (by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel), film and a video game. The word entertain has an uncountable plural form, entertainments.
