No Shabbat this week in Samoa

There is a fascinating case of a disappearing friday in Samoa this week.  Samoa is officially moving to the other side of the international date line, and will be losing Friday December 30, 2011.  No one will be born or die on this day, it will simply not exist.  Curios to know how this affects shabbat.

Or a detective mystery: "My alibi is that I was in Samoa on December 30, officer."
