What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a great way to have fun and get your mind off everyday life. There are a variety of different entertainments, and they can be tailored to fit any occasion. These can range from an individual watching a movie or listening to music for their own pleasure; to a large banquet for two people, with entertainment provided; to a spectacle designed to be enjoyed by thousands. Some forms of entertainment may have a serious purpose, such as ceremony, religious festival, or satire. The word entertain is derived from the Medieval Latin intertenere, from the root ten, which means to hold inside.
