In a rare move for a country embroiled in a modern day Crusade with the Saracens, the Empire State Building is being lit green in honor of Eid-ul-Fitr, a three day Muslim celebration marking the end of Ramadan. This is the first time that NYC’s tallest building turned on the lights for an Islamic holiday, but it will become an annual event like the yearly lightings done for Christmas and Hannukah. It’s comforting to know that the landmark building is guaranteed to be bomb free for at least three days a year.
