What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment has come to be associated with amusement, whereas the original meaning of the word included serious activities such as ceremonies, festivals, religious celebrations and satire. This reflects the fact that entertainment can be as much of an intellectual experience as it is enjoyable. Children’s entertainment is particularly significant for their development, as it often teaches them about adult activities and prepares them for family life (7). Entertaiment can be adapted to any scale, from personal choice of a film or book for two to performances intended for thousands.
