Entertaiment — something that entertains, amuses, or engages the attention agreeably; a pastime, amusement, diversion, game, or act of play. The word may derive from the Latin intertenere, with the prefix inter meaning “inside” and the suffix tenere denoting hold, or from the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch or extend. The word may also refer to a form of euphoria in which one loses all sense of time and wishes that the moment never end.
