Articles about Entertaiment

The word entertainment, from the Latin inter-tenere (“to hold inside”), has long held a wide range of meanings. One common understanding of the idea of entertainment is that it involves amusement, although many forms of entertainment have a serious purpose. They may be a form of work, a ritual, a religious festival, or even a political satire. They are also capable of being adapted to fit any scale: a single person selecting an audiovisual entertainment; banquets or parties for two, fifty, or thousands; or performances aimed at a global audience.
