Entertaiment is an agreeable occupation for the mind or diversion. It can be anything that gives pleasure, amusement or a distraction from one’s daily work; solving the crossword puzzle; attending a musical performance; an evening at the theater; or even just watching TV. Entertainment requires consumer activity, is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, and occurs in a passive form.
The word is often abbreviated to entmt on fliers, in industry news publications and in short hand note taking. Entertainment is a part of the human experience that hits on deep points that our brain was evolved to react to.
