There are some exceptions (see under the Explanations tab), but only a few.

AT a time, ON a day, IN  a period

- I get up at 9 o'clock. At midnight it is dark but at noon it is daylight (midnight= 00:00, noon = 12:00)
- I start school on Monday. Christmas is on December the 25th.
- I go to the sea in summer. I went to Seville in 1992
