In that case, I disagree with Ben.  My default locale is en_GB.

Only US users will probably not want to change locale, though of course
non-US users may stick with C.

     "And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto 
      you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat;
      neither for the body, what ye shall put on. For life 
      is more than meat, and the body is more than clothing.
      Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; 
      they have neither storehouse nor barn; and yet God  
      feeds them;  how much better you are than the birds!
      Consider the lilies, how they grow; they toil 
      not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that  
      Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of 
      these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to 
      day in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven;
      how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little  
      faith?  And seek not what ye shall eat, or what ye 
      shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 
      But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these 
      things shall be added unto you."         
                              Luke 12:22-24; 27-29; 31.
