Entertaiment is a vast area of activity ranging from an individual choosing private entertainment on the now enormous array of pre-recorded products available to them; to banquets adapted for two or more; to performances that can accommodate thousands. It can also take the form of a ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or satire for example. Often the experience of being entertained is fun and amusing, although it may have a serious purpose as well. It is sometimes abbreviated to entmt on fliers or in industry news publications, where space is limited. It is also used as an adjective, but rarely in general prose.
