Locale options in Magento 1.6 define the local time and date settings as well as the weekend days of your Magento shopping cart. Weekend days are defined as the non-working days of the week in your area. Defining these days can help customers determine shipping methods and other aspects of shopping on your website. Setting the timeszone, locale language, first day of week, and the weekend days are done in the Magento 1.6 Admin Backend.
