We use Prepositions of Time (in, at and on) for the various aspects of time. But when do you use “in”, “at” and “on”?
In general, we use “in” before for months, years, seasons, and historical periods. In English, “at” is for specific times, places, and meals. And we use “on” for days of the week and specific dates.
