Promotions Are Coming: 3 Ways to Honor Game of Thrones
Certain months bring the action, and March hasn’t disappointed. Think about it. International Women’s Day was on March 8. Pub crawls are in full swing as St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) approaches. And if you’re into dyeing eggs and going to brunch, Easter (along with my grandmother’s 86th birthday) falls on March 31.
However, there’s another big event happening on March 31 that you won’t find printed on your calendars: It’s “Game of Thrones” season premiere day! If you’re unfamiliar with “Game of Thrones,” it’s an epic fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The show is an adaptation of "A Song of Ice and Fire," George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels*.
There’s too much information about “Game of Thrones” (and Martin’s books) to communicate. Here’s an oversimplified summary in one sentence, courtesy of Wikipedia: “Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores issues of social hierarchy, religion, civil war, sexuality, crime and punishment.” Bottom line, pick up the books and watch old episodes on HBO On Demand.
Because “Game of Thrones” season premiere day trumps everything else, I thought it would be fun to connect the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos to the real world of promotional products. Enjoy!
