Entertaiment is the time we take out of our busy lives to have fun, whether that be with friends or family. Often it involves a performance such as theatre, movies, music or games. Entertainment is all about making people happy and relaxing, a time to have some fun and forget about the stress of life.
Entertainment is constantly changing, adapted for different needs and audiences. For instance, the story of Scheherazade from the professional storytelling tradition is retold in many forms, including an orchestral piece by Rimsky-Korsakov and others, films by directors like Pasolini and even innovative video games.
