The Importance of Entertaiment

Entertaiment is a very important aspect of our lives. We all work so hard at our jobs and at home and can get a bit boring and unfulfilling without some fun. Entertainment can be anything from watching a funny movie to having a dinner party with friends. It helps family grow closer and can relieve stress.

The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere and it means to hold inside. It has evolved over time to accommodate any size and type of audience. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertainment is understood objectively, includes communication between text and audience, requires an external stimulus, offers pleasure, involves passivity and occurs in a consumer form.
