What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment means something that holds the attention of the mind and gives pleasure or delight. It may be an idea, a concept or an activity, such as banqueting, music or sports. It can be private entertainment involving a single person or a group of people, or it can be entertainment for thousands of spectators in a stadium. Entertainment often crosses over into different media, for example the Scheherazade story from the Persian professional storytelling tradition has inspired a number of orchestral works, film adaptations and innovative video games. It is also possible for activities that were once used for hunting or war to become spectator sports.
