What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad term that can be used to describe anything that offers diversion, amusement or distraction. It can be anything from a clown at a birthday party to a stadium rock concert, or it may be something more subtle like a daily crossword puzzle. It can also refer to any form of recreation or leisure activity, whether it is an individual choice of entertainment or a requirement for hospitality, like banquets or religious festivals. It is often abbreviated to entmt on fliers or industry news publications where space is limited.
