What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad term that encompasses anything that provides enjoyment, whether it be something as simple as watching a TV show for an hour; a theatrical performance that may involve thousands of people in a stadium; or even research into the cause and cure of cancer. Entertainments can be adapted to suit the needs of different individuals, groups and societies. Entertainment has a strong association with amusement, and often the experience is seen as lighthearted. However, there are also many forms of entertainment that have a more serious purpose such as ritual, ceremony, religious festival and satire.
