Entertaiment is the act of giving pleasure to others. It can be a performance of a play, movie or music. It can also be an activity that involves your friends or family, such as a game or fighting over the last potato chip at the party. Originally, the word entertainment was associated with hospitality—when you entertained someone else, you kept them happy. This was because it meant that you were providing them with something they wanted to do. But now, the word can also mean anything that makes people feel good or gives them pleasure. It can be a funny clown at the birthday party or a great theater show.
