About this Article
Entertaiment is a broad word that can encompass a variety of experiences. It can be as simple as the enjoyment of a favorite meal, or it may involve elaborate spectacles intended for thousands. It can also be a form of artistic expression, or it may be as serious as political satire. It can even have a religious or spiritual basis, as in ceremonial dance or a sacred festival. The word entertainment has evolved to accommodate new forms and new media, but the underlying meaning remains unchanged.
