Entertaiment is the art and practice of occupying or amusing oneself. It includes such activities as watching movies, television, or videos; listening to music; playing musical instruments or attending concerts; reading books or magazines; and participating in sports and games. It may also include social activities, such as visiting museums or art galleries, and creating or appreciating visual arts.
