Oct 23

Mole Day

Aside from being a blind rodent, a mole is also a unit of measurement in chemistry. The actual date of this unofficial holiday was based on the idea of Avogardo’s number which is approximately 6.02×1023 (so October 23, between 6:02 AM and 6:02 PM). This number is used in defining the number of particles in one mole of substance. You can check out their website and make as many mole jokes/chemistry jokes as you please.
