Entertaiment is the process of enhancing the quality of life by enjoying or creating new experiences. It includes a wide range of activities, including entertainment for children and adults, that help to make families and friends feel happy and fulfilled. A common understanding of entertainment is fun and laughter, although some forms may have a more serious purpose. These purposes include cultural or religious celebrations, ceremonies, festivals, satire, and the reworking of familiar forms into new versions intended for different audiences. These forms can vary in their scale, from the private entertainment of one person to the global competitions staged for thousands.
