Localization implicates a myriad of issues regarding multiple data types. Reading the now six year old report at techdb R8982 is recommendable, especially Larry Atkin’s comment of Apr 07, 2017 at 3:28 AM. Today, we further need to consider platform-neutrality and internationalization. For some salient background regarding dates, see ISO - ISO 8601 — Date and time format including the linked article, ISO - Date and time: the new draft of ISO 8601 explained by Klaus-Dieter Naujok. For still more fun, consider that the Helix clock starts at the beginning of January 1, 0001. That is the date stored when a date field is set to omit the date so that only the time is used.
