What's your locale set to? (I suppose LC_TIME is especially
interesting.)

On my machine:

  % locale
  LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
  LANGUAGE=en_GB:en_GB:en
  LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
  LC_ALL=
  % date
