Samoa is skipping Friday
Last summer, Samoa decided it had enough of being tied to the east and America and decided it was time to align itself with China and the rest of Asia. They chose tomorrow as the day of transition. Everyone on Samoa will go to bed, tonight on the 29th and will wake up on Saturday December 31st. There is no December 30th. I cannot imagine what astrologers will do in the future when they have to do a chart for some baby born in this window, (probably a professional foot ball player) because it will be confusing, for sure. I know that I still struggle when I do charts for people born in Indiana and Illinois between the 40's and 60's and try to figure out 'to daylight savings time or to not daylight savings time. Darn farmers made it all so confusing.
(APIA, Samoa) — The tiny South Pacific nation of Samoa and its neighbor Tokelau will jump forward in time on Thursday, crossing westward over the international date line to align themselves with their other 21st century trading partners throughout the region.
At the stroke of midnight on Dec. 29, time in Samoa and Tokelau will leap forward to Dec. 31 — New Year's Eve. For Samoa's 186,000 citizens, and the 1,500 in Tokelau, Friday, Dec. 30, 2011, will simply cease to exist.
