Entertaiment – fun, amusement, recreation, diversion, distraction.
Entertaining takes many forms and is aimed at a wide variety of audiences. From the individual choosing entertainment from a vast array of pre-recorded products; to banquets adapted for two or more; to performances for thousands of people, there is something entertaining for everyone.
