Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Replying to [comment:4 DrewAPicture]:
 > Turns out the `$translate` parameter in `mysql2date()` defaults to true,
 which means `get_the_date()` and in turn `the_date()` output localized

 Correct, also noted in [comment:ticket:23918:6].

 > On that same token, I'm not sure which global @nacin was referring to in

 `$currentday`, see [24189].

 `the_weekday()` — to not display the current post's day if it's different
 from the previous one? Is that the previous post's day? Why?

 As stated in the inline docs, `the_weekday_date()` only displays the
 weekday if the current post's weekday is different from the previous
 output. Looks like the idea is the same as in
 [http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_date the_date()] vs.
 [http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_time the_time()].
