ST Patrick’s Day in NYC and Five Towns Limousines

March 18, 2023

In America, one of the most popular National Holidays is St. Patrick’s Day. This festival falls on March 17th and is celebrated by people from all around the world. It was started by Irish immigrants in America and became popular due to their influence on American culture. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated with a parade in New York where participants are permitted to wear green clothes, drink alcohol, dress up as leprechauns or other Irish stereotypes like Elvis Presley impersonators or people wearing Leprechaun costumes or even as state officials like George Washington for example. The St Patrick’s Parade is an event that starts at 11 o’clock and lasts for two hours during which people are expected to wear green clothing, drink alcohol (for those who are old enough) and dance their hearts out while they enjoy the festivities going on throughout the streets of New York City. The end point of this parade can be found in Brooklyn which marks the beginning of a different parade that lasts until 10 pm while it travels through some parts of Manhattan before ending at Central Park South between 5th Avenue & 6th Avenue near Columbus Circle where there will be live music performances as well as food stands selling Irish food all day long including corned beef sandwiches, corn beef hash. There is no better time to book a luxuriously appointed limousine during this time from Five Towns Limousines. Sit back, enjoy, and watch the festivities unfold around you while sipping your favorite cocktail while being pampered by Five Towns Limousines.

Why book a limo from Five Towns Limousine for Purim and its history

March 9, 2023

A traditional celebration that commemorates the Jews’ victory over their enemies, Haman and his allies, during a time in the Persian Empire known as “The Story of Purim.” The enemies had planned to exterminate all Jews on the 13th day of Adar, which is why this holiday is also called “The Fast of Esther”. Purim celebrates the Jewish people’s victory against their enemy Haman and his allies. It takes place at night on 14th day of Adar and lasts until 2nd day of Adar. Purim celebrates two important things: The first is how Mordecai was able to save Queen Esther and her cousin Hadassah from death by revealing that they were Jewish; this led to Haman being executed on King Xerxes’ orders. The second thing Purim celebrates is how Queen Esther convinced Xerxes not to kill all Jews living in Persia because they are innocent people who have done nothing wrong. King Xerxes did agree with Queen Esther, which meant that he would allow the Jewish population to be destroyed if someone found out about their identity instead.

Celebrated in the Jewish communities by both young and old. Costumes are the norm for the 2-day celebration. Groups of young people solicit donations from the Jewish community. These donations are given to charities to help the less fortunate. This is a very happy time with participants dancing in the streets and music, in celebration of this glorious holiday. So why book a limo with Five Towns Limousines? We supply safe transportation that is so important during this happy time.
