Entertaiment is the esthetic pleasures, fun, and amusement that a person or group may enjoy. This category of activity is broad and varied, and encompasses many forms. While some activities, such as fencing or archery, which were necessary skills in the past have developed into serious sports and professions for their participants, others, such as singing, have become a form of entertainment that appeals to wider audiences. What is entertaining to one may be a form of cruel abuse to another.
