Did You Know? – Entertaiment

The act or art of entertaining; agreeable occupation for the mind or diversion; amusement: Solving a crossword puzzle is an entertainment.

Entertainment evolves and can be adapted for any scale, from an individual listening to a CD or watching television to a banquet adapted for two to performances staged for thousands and broadcast globally. Entertainment often serves a serious purpose: it teaches children important life skills (through play); prepares them for adult responsibilities, such as child rearing or social interaction (through dolls and group games); or helps them develop the physical or motor skills needed for sports and music.
