Have no idea if "act of Congress" is common or not in South Africa....but this an American idiom, where it originated and is still used from time to time. See phrase.com, yourdictionary.com, and just about every other dictionary or idiom collection for the country of origin.

Volleyball, soccer, tennis. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. Last night I rested well after a long work day. I am anxious for the weekend to come & I look forward to a new year. Time surely moves quickly and there's much to be done. Winter is my least favorite season. I yearn for warm sunny days. When I am not reading or writing I watch television. Yesterday I saw Sabrina the teenage witch on TV. Tom Cruise is a great actor and always delivers in Mission Impossible 2. Closer starring Natalie Portman should arrive in the mail today. I hope so. Ms. Portman is extra cute and charming. Working from home has clear advantages & is a bright spot.
