Entertaiment is the ability to divert, amuse or delight individuals or groups. It can take many forms, including playing games, watching movies, or going to concerts and social gatherings. The entertainment industry has been experiencing a downturn in recent times, and many people have been cutting costs by finding ways to enjoy their favorite activities for less money. The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere, from the prefix inter meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere referring to holding something inside.
