Samoa drops Friday, December 30

The day of December 30 will be deleted from the Samoan  calendar. This is being done in order to bring the nation closer to the time zones of its biggest trading partners, Australia and New Zealand. Samoa is 11 hours after GMT and from having been one of the last places where the new year begins it will now become one of the first. After the change has taken place Samoa will be one hour ahead of New Zealand and three hours ahead of Sydney, Australia. (DR News via Bengt Ericson, ARC)
