Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement, such as a play, party, or sports competition. Often, what appears to be entertainment is also a form of training or work for a specific activity, such as military drills or archery practice; or preparation for adult activities, such as child rearing or group social interaction (through games, dolls, or pet ownership). Some entertainment is intended to be pure recreation, while others may have a more serious or moral purpose, like a ceremony, religious festival, or political satire.
