Hello again,

I found a few more articles supporting the idea that December 31, 1994 was the day that was skipped:

> Hello,
> When these time zones switched sides of the International Dateline at the beginning of 1995, the tz database, viewed via zdump, shows Sunday, January 1 being skipped — Saturday December 31, 1994 being followed immediately by Monday, January 2, 1995.
> I found an article, however, that suggests that December 31 was the day that was skipped, so that the transition would be from Friday December 30, 1994 to Sunday January 1, 1995: https://wikitravel.org/en/Kiribati <https://wikitravel.org/en/Kiribati>
> I have no particular reason to believe this article is authoritative, but it did strike me odd that New Year’s Day, and a Sunday (more likely to offend some people’s religious sensibilities) would be the day that was skipped rather than Saturday.
