Moscow, Russia

Halliburton references the Russian holiday held on November 7, commemorating the Bolshevik Revolution. This holiday was replaced in 2005 by National Unity Day, commemorating Russia’s defeat of Polish invaders by Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin in 1612. It is celebrated on November 4th and still includes much in the way of festivities and street gatherings.
