A diversion, amusement, or agreeable occupation for the mind. Laughter and light-hearted fun are the most familiar forms of entertainment, but many forms of entertainment may also serve serious purposes such as educating, inspiring, or reminding us of our humanness. Entertainment can be individualized for two people at a table; for a family during a vacation; or performed to thousands of spectators. Entertaiment is one of the few artistic and cultural activities that can be universally defined, and it continues to evolve in all media.
