 Wednesday, the 4th of November, 2015 is the 308th day in 2015 and in the 45th calendar week.
General Events:
King Tut Day 2015
November 4, 2015 in the World
King Tut Day is celebrated on November 04, 2015. It celebrates the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s Tomb. Tutankhamun was the 11th pharaoh of Dynasty 18 of the New Kingdom in Ancient Egypt, making his mummy over 3,300 years old. The discovery of the tomb as a whole was one of the most significant and famous archeological discoveries in modern times. The tomb was discovered on November 4, 1922.
Since the discovery of Tutankhamun’s mummy, there has been a lot of speculation and theories on the exact cause of death, which until recent studies had been hard to prove with the evidence and data available. While it was a widely debated topic for many Egyptologists, it had also spread to the general public as popular culture has come up with many conspiracy theories that played out in movies, TV shows, and fictional books.

Russian Unity Day
November 4, 2015 in Russia
Russian Unity Day is celebrated on November 04, 2015. Unity Day (also called Day of People’s Unity or National Unity Day) is national holiday in Russian Federation. It commemorates the popular uprising which expelled Polish–Lithuanian occupation forces from Moscow in November 1612, and more generally the end of the Time of Troubles and the Polish–Muscovite War (1605–1618). The day’s name alludes to the idea that all classes of Russian society united to preserve Russian statehood when there was neither a tsar nor a patriarch to guide them. In 1613 tsar Mikhail Romanov instituted a holiday named Day of Moscow’s Liberation from Polish Invaders. It was celebrated in the Russian Empire until 1917, when it was replaced with a commemoration of the Russian Revolution. Unity Day was reinstituted by the Russian Federation in 2005, since when the year 1612 has been celebrated instead of 1917 every November 4. The day is also the feast day of the Russian Orthodox icon of Our Lady of Kazan.

National Chicken Lady Day
November 4, 2015 in the USA
November 4 annually celebrates National Chicken Lady Day, a day that honors Dr. Marthenia “Tina” Dupree.  For 12 years, Dr. Dupree worked for the second largest chicken restaurant in the world as Director of Community Relations and Training. She was widely known due to her work in the community.  Within this time and among the people that she worked with and helped,  she became known as “The Chicken Lady.”
 For more than two decades, Dr. Dupree helped to teach, train and certify hundreds of professional speakers, authors and trainers. In 2001, National Chicken Lady Day was created as a day that everyone she has helped over the years, along with  the trickling effect of the help that those people give to millions of others, can say “thank you”.
