The Empire State Building is lighting the way this holiday season and has turned red and green for Christmas and blue and white for Hanukkah.

For the past several nights, the skyscraper’s lights have been synced to Mariah Carey’s hit, All I Want for Christmas is You.

The music-light show was synced every night at 7pm until Saturday when the announcement was made that the lights would add blue for Hanukkah. 

Festive scenes can be seen all across New York at the Rockefeller Center, along Fifth Avenue, Macy’s in Manhattan and more.
