What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad category of leisure activities that include movie and television watching, listening to music, playing video games or board games, sports, dance performances, comedy shows, and viewing or creating visual art. It also includes reading and poetry. The word entertainment derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere, which means to hold inside. It can also be used to describe the feeling of pleasure and enjoyment a person gets from various entertainment.

Different people find different forms of entertainment entertaining, for example a child might enjoy cartoons and playgrounds while an adult would prefer to attend a comedy show or read a book. Entertainment often hits on themes that our brains were evolved to deeply react to, like backstabbing and murders.
