What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an activity that brings enjoyment, relaxation, or pleasure to the participants. It can be at a personal level, such as an individual who chooses a private entertainment from an enormous array of pre-recorded products; it can be at a social level, such as a banquet adapted to two people or a party with music and dance; or it can be at a large scale, such as a performance intended for thousands. Often, activities once used in hunting or war become spectator sports; or stories, such as Scheherazade from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, inspire musical works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski and film adaptations and innovative video games.
