What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the activities, sports, games, hobbies, and interests that people engage in for enjoyment and recreation. It can include watching movies and television, playing video games, sports, attending live music concerts or theater performances, reading books or poetry for pleasure and enrichment, and enjoying visual art.

The word entertainment comes from the Medieval Latin inter tenere, which means “to hold inside.” Its Indo-European root is ten, meaning to stretch or expand.
