Entertaiment is a wide ranging term that includes everything from a private entertainment for two to a performance intended for thousands. It may involve music, dance, or other forms of aesthetic expression, and it can be designed for a specific audience and its environment. It may also be associated with serious or social purposes. Regardless of the intent, the experience of being entertained is typically thought of as fun and laughter. However, there are many forms of entertainment that are more serious than this. Some examples include ceremony, celebration, religious festival and satire. Whether or not the intent is to entertain, it often involves a great deal of effort and planning.
