Entertaiment is the process of diverting, amusing, or entertaining oneself. It can be created and consumed in many ways, from playing games or video games to creating or consuming visual art. While entertainment is often associated with pleasure and recreation, it can also have a deeper purpose, such as in ritual, a religious festival, or even satire. Entertainment is a diverse and ever-evolving medium, with the capacity to cross over different platforms and accommodate a vast audience. It can be adapted for individual and group consumption, from personal choice of pre-recorded media to large-scale performances. See also: amusement, fun, enjoyment, and laughter.
