What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a concept which can be interpreted in many ways and it evolves and adapts to the needs of the individual or group who experiences it. It can range from the private entertainment of two people who choose their own pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for entertaining; to performances intended for thousands or even the entire world.

The word “entertainment” is derived from the Latin intertenere, which means to hold inside. It is related to the Indo-European root ten, which meant “stretch.” See our article on The Meaning of Entertaiment.
