Entertaiment is the activity of enjoying things for pleasure. It encompasses a variety of activities, including performances of plays and movies, games, listening to music and watching television. It can be for private or public purposes and may range from a small party to a performance intended for thousands. It can be a way to bond with friends and family, or it can be an opportunity to explore new interests. It also helps children develop their social skills and can help them prepare for future responsibilities such as child-rearing or being a part of a community. Entertainment also teaches people to use their imaginations and creativity.
