Entertaiment is the word we use to describe things that make you happy or distract your mind from other things. The clown at your birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, a game of tag—these are all forms of entertainment! It was originally associated with hospitality, but now it’s also the word we use to refer to all types of fun and amusement. The word comes from the French word entretenir, meaning “to hold together.” It’s important to find ways to unwind and have a good time every now and then—and that’s where entertainment comes in!
