What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is an important part of life. It can provide us with pleasure, relaxation and a break from our daily tasks. It can also bring us insights and intellectual growth. But what is entertainment for one may not be for another. It all depends on the individual’s taste and what they are looking for from the experience.

The word “entertainment” derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere, which means “to hold inside.” It also has roots in bowel and intestine through the Latin word enteron.
