Entertaiment is a form of recreation, diverting people from their daily concerns or routines for a short time and providing enjoyment. This can include activities such as watching movies, going to concerts, playing games, reading books or engaging in social gatherings. The word is derived from the Latin intertenere and the Indo-European root ten, meaning “to hold inside,” and may refer to a holding company or an entertainment news website.
