What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is any activity designed to provide enjoyment, amusement, relaxation, or diversion. It may include any form of recreation or leisure activities, such as games, sports, or dramatic and musical performances. It can also encompass ceremonies or festivals, or social gatherings such as banquets, dances, or parties. Many forms of entertainment have evolved over centuries, adapting to changing cultures and technology while maintaining a sense of familiarity. Click on a collocation to see more examples.

Entertaiment can be experienced on any scale, from the individual who chooses a private form of entertainment from among the now vast array of pre-recorded products; to a family or group enjoying a feast or banquet; to events staged for thousands, and even viewed by global audiences.
