Downtown skyscraper night colors

Just there some kind of go-to, be it online or offline, that can explain why the lights on the downtown skyscrapers are certain colors at certain times?

I've never seen an on-line guide, but the Hancock Building pretty much matches their light colors to the current holiday season: red and green for Christmas, orange for Halloween, red-white-and-blue for Independence Day, etc.
