Game of Thrones Season 8 صراع العروش الموسم ٨ Posted by on Apr 16, 2019 in Uncategorized

It is undeniable that the TV series Game of Thrones has become a worldwide sensation. After premiering in 2011, the show’s popularity kept increasing through the years. On Sunday, the final installment of the 8 season saga aired at 8 PM in the US. As for us, the people who live on the other side of the globe, we had to watch it on Monday morning because of the time difference.

Game of Thrones is kind of a big deal here in Lebanon. People get so hyped about new seasons that they clear their schedules on Mondays and call in sick for work so that they can live-stream GoT simultaneously with the US.  It is aired in pubs and cafes all around the country.

This year tho, it has been taken to a whole new level. Funny banners were put up all around Beirut in support of John Snow and his battle against the White Walkers, wishing him luck and fortune in his endeavors.

” John Snow , May the Lord be with you.”

And another one :

” The citizens of Beirut pledge full support to John Snow in his battle against the White Walkers”

A special message to Cercei :

” Cercei LAnnister … be smart … our union is our strength. “

Marhaba! My name is Anastasia, I'm Lebanese and I'm the new Arabic blogger! As the great prophet Khalil Gibran once said "You have your Lebanon and I have my Lebanon." For as long as I can remember, my country has been poorly portrayed in the Western media, so allow me to introduce to the magic, mystical, and breathtakingly beautiful land I grew up in called : LEBANON.
