What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is the collection of all activities and events that provide amusement and fun, although many entertainments have a serious purpose. This includes ceremonial or religious festivals, satire, and other forms of social commentary. It has also come to include the escapist entertainments of movies, music and games. This evolution of entertainment has shown that it is highly adaptable and can be tailored to a range of audiences and purposes.
