What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an expansive, omnipresent domain that encompasses art forms like music, film, and literature, physical sports, games, and amusement parks. It can range from escapism and joy to catharsis and cerebral engagement, as well as everything in between. It is a form of recreation that can be enjoyed by the entire family or by individuals of any age. It can even serve to elevate and expand one’s consciousness, whether through an engaging documentary or a complex puzzle.
