Samoa to Celebrate 2012 Tomorrow!
Samoa Jumps 24 Hours into the Future Tonight
the island nations of Samoa and Tokelau will jump 24 hours into the future tonight, when the international date line is revised to facilitate Samoan trade with Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. (American Samoa will stay on Hawaii's side of the line.) When 18,600 Samoans and 1,500 Tokelauans go to bed tonight, it will be a Thursday. When they awake, it will be Saturday.
The change either "reflects a new business order" where China is king, or a flimsy excuse for Samoa to "edge ahead of Tonga as the place where 2012 begins." Quit cutting in line.

Maybe the Samoans figured that, for at least for one week, this was a way to avoid that Rebecca Black song.
