What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad topic that can be interpreted in a number of ways. The word itself is derived from the Medieval Latin intertenere, meaning to hold inside; however, it has become more commonly associated with amusement. In its most broad sense, entertainment can include anything that gives enjoyment and pleasure, from a private television show to a banquet arranged for two; from an exhibition of art to performances intended for thousands. Many entertainments also have a deeper or more serious meaning, as in a religious festival or satire for instance.
