Entertaiment is the capacity to enjoy, or be amused, with pleasure. It is an essential part of human life, and can be provided on many different scales, from the personal choice of entertainment available to an individual, to banquets adapted for two or more people, to the performance of works of art for thousands of spectators. It is also an important element of the social context and is often linked to the idea of morality. The word comes from the Medieval Latin inter tenere, derived from the Indo-European root ten, meaning to hold inside.
