Seeing Red

NYC's Empire State Building is night-lighted in white on most nights, but sometimes gets Colorized for special occasions, like green on St. Pat's Day .

Tonight it will be awash in red and yellow.

Oh, how pretty.

What is the occasion?

It's the 60th anniversary of the bloody communist takeover -aka-
The Chinese Revolution.

Why would anyone want to celebrate an event that resulted in the deaths of 70+ million Chinese?

I'm sure that I have not a clue.
