Let’s Skip A Day

The Island nation of Samoa has decided to celebrate the new year a day early by jumping over the International Date Line so that it can be the first to ring in the new year.  The reasons for doing this is because of the fact that most of the residents of Samoa live in other nations like Australia and New Zealand…both are major trade partners with Samoa.  For an economic advantage and just to make it easier Samoans skipped Friday December 30th…for them it did not exist!
