A funny thing happens on Sundays if you are Chinese.
$ LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.utf8 date -d sunday
日 12月 10 00:00:00 CST 2006

The problem occurs because the word 日 means "Sunday" and also "day"
in Chinese.

This is really a translation problem.  You should bring it up with the
Chinese translation team.  See

It's possible that the Chinese (Traditional) translation team may not
be able to fix this problem because it's inherent in the language.
