Mole Day

Mole Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated by chemists and chemistry students on October 23 in honor of the mole, a measuring unit in Chemistry.

A mole digging dirt.

The mole measures chemical entities such as atoms or molecules and is formally defined as the amount of any substance that contains as many entities as there are atoms in 12 grams of carbon-12.

Associated with Avogadro’s number, a dimensionless measuring unit in Chemistry, the mole approximates to 6.02×1023. The number is named after Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro.

6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m

Mole Day is celebrated annually between 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m (18:02) on October 23 because when written in the month-date format, the date and time 6.02, 10/23 include the digits in Avogadro’s number.

The National Mole Day Foundation founded in 1991 celebrates the day every year with a theme. Some of the recent themes include Molar Eclipse in 2012, Mole of the Caribbean in 2010, and Molar Express in 2009.

How to Celebrate?

  • Get your geek on for this day. Wear a mole t-shirt and when someone asks you about it, explain the concept of mole to them.
  • Have a mole-themed party and serve guaca“mole” and wear mole (the animal) costumes.

Did You Know…

…that a group of moles is called a labor?






While driving on the highway, my daughter noticed a child in the window of a car in the next lane, holding up a handwritten sign that read "Help."

A few minutes later, the car passed her and she again glanced at it. The little boy held up the same sign and this time followed it with another, which read "My mother is singing!"




FYI: By the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas song, your home is crammed with 23 flying Birds and 50 hyperactive Humans.




My sister was busy getting ready to host our entire family for Easter. On her to-do list was a hair appointment for her daughter. "So, Katie," said the stylist as the little girl got up in the chair, "who's coming to your house this weekend with big ears and floppy feet?"

Katie replied, "I think it's my uncle Brian."




Students are great about 
sending our troops letters, and the troops love ’em. You can see why:

“Dear Soldier, If you’re having 
a rough day, remember the most 
important thing in life is to be 
yourself. Unless you can be Batman.”

“Dear Veterans, You rock more than AC/DC or Metallica or Red 
Hot Chili Peppers.”

“I am so happy you are risking your life for the USA! My grandpa Bob was in the Navy. Now he likes peanuts.”











The picture was taken in 1988. The ship is not the Stennis, it’s the USS America. The pilot is Dale Snodgrass, a Navy demonstration pilot. The flyby was planned in advance. The man on deck with his hands behind his back is Admiral Jay Johnson. The pilot was not grounded. Other than that, spot on.
