How to Say the Date?
Which is right:
Feb. 2, 2009 or in

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!
