I'm a little confused, you say its fermenting for 4 hours but with no airlock movement? When you look at your fermenter do you see a yeast floating around?

When I pitched my yeast is was activly fermenting within an hour.

Maybe your airlock does not have a proper seal? you could always toss in another packet of yeast. When I did the recipe I tossed in a whole packet of yeast in.

Do not rely on airlock activity for fermentation activity

I really think that high gravity should brew a 5 gallon batch of this since they have the resources and the fermentors. This would be really cool to see when you walked into their shop.

This is what it looks like over night. I am assuming all that that sediment on the bottom is from the oranges & cinnamon? But yeah nothing from the airlock besides two bubbles every 10 mins.

By the way your carboy looks, there was a very active fermentation. The oranges could be blocking the co2 that is in there. I suggest that you top it up.

It only takes like a week to 10 days for it to ferment, the rest of the 2 months is for clearing and aging.
