What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a form of leisure activity that ranges from playing games with children to watching performances for global audiences. Activities such as hunting or warfare may be turned into spectator sports; skills acquired by children through play may become professional pursuits; and activities such as cooking can be a part of entertainment, either in restaurants or as television shows. The ability of entertainment to cross between different mediums is illustrated by the way that stories like Scheherazade have inspired orchestral works, film and innovative video games.
