How to Say the Date?

by Waleed

Which is right:

on Feb. 2, 2009 or in Feb. 2, 2009
Hi Waleed, your first option is correct.
We always say on a date or day.

I was born on November 22 1982
I start work on March 13, 2009

If you are curious about other date related situations and what preposition we use, here is a short list.

ON Friday (on a day of the week)
IN March (in a month)
ON the 6th (on a date)
IN a year (in 2014)
AT a time (at 5pm)

Have a wonderful day!
