A clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show, your friends fighting over the last potato chip — these are all examples of Entertaiment. The word comes from the Old French entretenir, which originally meant to support or entertain a guest. It also means to divert or amuse. We usually think of theatrical entertainment as shows, visual entertainment as things we like to look at, and audio entertainment as mostly music.
Entertainment is an activity that provides enjoyment and relaxation by distracting people from their daily routines and providing them with pleasant experiences. It can be done through movies, television, concerts, sports, games, reading, and social gatherings.
