What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a huge industry that offers livelihoods to many. It is a form of socialization and is influenced by narrative traditions and morality. It also creates a sense of identity for people. It has the ability to cross different media and demonstrate a seemingly unlimited creative remix potential. This is evident in the long life of familiar forms such as novels and movies.

It has evolved into an activity that can be adapted to an individual who selects from a wide array of pre-recorded entertainment products; a family or group who may enjoy a banquet suited for two, or a grouping as large as thousands who are entertained by a performance. The word entertain comes from the Medieval Latin intertenere, which derives from the Indo-European root ten, meaning to hold inside or to stretch out.
