Entertaiment is any activity intended to amuse, divert, or provide enjoyment. It includes activities such as leisure and recreational pursuits, amusements, and sports. It also includes a wide range of events that are cultural, social, or spiritual in nature, as well as other forms of personal expression and self-gratification. Some examples of entertainment include movies, concerts, recreation centres, games, sports, and reading. What appears to be entertainment for one person or group of people may be considered work or an act of cruelty by others.
