--- Comment #1 from Thomas Baumgart <tbaumgart at kde.org> ---
Using LC_TIME=en_CA.utf8 gets what you want. Apparently, there is a difference
in the display between the base system and what Qt provides. en_DK.utf8 is one

I have de_DE.utf8 as my default locale for time. The following table show what
is going on. I start the programs either without providing a specific locale
(default) or with specifically setting the LC_TIME variable in the environment
starting the program.

LC_TIME      date +%x      KMyMoney
default      05.12.2020    05.12.20
en_DK.utf8   2020-12-05    05/12/2020
en_CA.utf8   2020-12-05    2020-12-05

So setting the LC_TIME variable has an effect, but there is a difference in the
result. Since KMyMoney uses standard Qt functions to do the conversion I see
this more of an upstream problem/feature.
