Cathode vs Anode

How do you determine which container has the cathode vs the anode?

the cathode will contain the reduction reaction and the anode will contain the oxidation reaction. something I find helpful to help me remember is "red cat" for reduction in cathode and "an ox" for anode = oxidation
