What is Entertaiment?



Entertainment has the ability to cross all media and is adaptable on any scale, ranging from the individual who chooses a personal entertainment from an enormous variety of pre-recorded products; to banquets adapted for two; to performances intended for thousands; or even the entire global population. Often, although entertaining for its own sake, it has a serious purpose in ceremonial and religious festivals, satire or social criticism. The word is derived from the Latin suffix -mentum, used to form nouns from verb stems (amazement, betterment, merriment, etc.), and from the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch or extend. It entered English from French in the late 15th century.

Entertaiment hits on the points that our brains was evolved to deeply react to, wich gives a good feeling considering that it stimulates the brain and releasing seratonin and dopamine.
