Ah Mr Quiz you are being tricky again!

The revolution took place 25th Oct 1917 under the Julian calendar in use in Russia at the time but on 7th November under the Gregorian calendar adopted after the revolution. The Tsar's, having sound instincts, had no truck with Pope Gregory's new fangled calendar. So I presume the October Revolution is commemorated in November! Sounds Oirish to me?
