- Monday | on Monday
- Tuesday | on Tuesday
- Wednesday | on Wednesday
- Thursday | on Thursday
- Friday | on Friday
- Saturday | on Saturday

Point 2: In spoken English, speakers often do not say the preposition on.

- morning | in the morning
- noon | at noon
- afternoon | in the afternoon
- evening | in the evening
- night | at night
- midnight | at midnight.
Point 4: When you combine a day of the week and a part of the day, you do need a preposition, except with noon and midnight. The time of day goes after the day.
- I will see you Monday night.
- Let's meets Sunday afternoon.
- I will see you Friday at noon.
