It's been a long week

A news story landed on my desk yesterday including the information that a felon had been jailed in July 2006 but is due for release on 20 December.

Nothing wrong with that but I found myself wondering why the month gets an 'in' while the day gets an 'on'.

Then I thought, Apus old chap, it's Friday evening. Go home.

I remember this confusing my students when I used to teach English as a foreign language: 'in for months, 'on' for days, 'at' for times. Prepositions, eh!

Ah! So that's what they call them ;)
