What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is anything that provides amusement, relaxation or diversion from one’s daily routine or mundane realities. It can take many forms such as watching movies, playing games, attending concerts or social gatherings.

The word “entertainment” was derived from the Latin phrase inter tenere, meaning to hold inside. It is a concept that can be defined objectively: it involves communication between text and audience, has an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires the audience to be active and takes place in a passive form.

In a society where entertainment is the key to happiness, it is important to understand what types of experiences are considered entertaining and why they are so appealing. In this way, we can continue to create new types of entertainment that will allow us to escape from our everyday lives and experience a sense of euphoria.
