Mole Day is celebrated on October 23, from 6:02 am to 6:02 pm.
It’s called Mole Day for the standard unit for measuring a amount of atoms or particles, known as the mole.
At that time there was no data at all on the number of particles in a mole, or an agreement on any atomic weights or the standard.

 Mole Day
Mole Day is an annual celebration of the discovery by Amedeo Avogardo, an Italian chemist who lived from 1776 to 1858, of the unit called the mole.
One mole is equal to the atomic mass, in grams, of a molecule.
Each year, Mole Day has a theme; in 1999, it was "it's a mole world." Students from across the U.S. celebrate Mole Day, creating projects that are often more about the animal than the unit.

 The Mole Day Page
Mole is a principle that was first stated in 1811 by Amadeo Avogadro.
It also makes possible determination of how much heavier a simple molecule of one gas is than that of another, as a result the relative molecular weights of gases can be ascertained by comparing the weights of equal volumes.
Avogadro's number (conventionally represented by N' in chemical calculations) is now considered to be the number of atoms present in 12 grams of the carbon-12 isotope (one mole of carbon 12) and can be applied to any type of chemical entity.
