What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is the upliftment of mood and feelings that results from a range of different activities. It can be as simple as laughing at a comedy show, or as complex as solving a mystery or engaging in strategic thinking. People may also find entertainment in sports, art, or literature. Entertaiment can be experienced alone or with others, for example, through a family movie night or multiplayer video games. Many familiar forms of entertainment have crossed into other media, demonstrating an almost unlimited potential for creative remix.
