Something that gives pleasure, diversion, or amusement. Traditionally, entertainment has had a lighthearted connotation, but many forms of it can have serious undertones, such as the ceremonies of a religious festival or a satire. In modern times, it can be adapted to any scale: from an individual choosing his or her own private entertainment from among the now enormous number of pre-recorded products; to banquets for two or more; to performances intended for a global audience.
