Entertaiment – A Definition and Suggestions

Entertainment is a form of amusement that can take many forms, from an individual choosing entertainment from the now enormous array of pre-recorded products to be enjoyed alone; to a banquet arranged for two; to a party for a hundred or more people; to performances for a global audience. The idea of entertainment has come to be strongly associated with amusement, but it may also have a more serious purpose in a ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or work such as satire.
