What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment has evolved over time to cover any form of activity that brings pleasure. Entertainment is defined for each individual based on who they are; it may be a personal selection of pre-recorded products; it may be the preparation of a meal or banquet; it may be a party with music and dancing or a performance intended for thousands; it can take the form of a ceremony or religious festival or even the use of satire to draw attention to a social or political issue. The word itself derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere meaning to hold inside, with a root from the Indo-European ten that means to stretch or expand.
