Practical Grammar Lesson 1:

Preposition Usage, Time and Place.
What is a preposition?

A group of words used with nouns and verbs and other words to form a prepositional phrase. A preposition always comes before nouns, but many writers have been writing the prepositions at the end of the sentences. e.g. who are you waiting for?

She left New York on Sunday. (She left for New York means She is travelling to New York.)

I want to take this book home for a day.                                                     

Some other Prepositions are above, along, to, from, between, before, into, of, since, etc.
Preposition + Noun (Month, Day, Year, Time etc.)      

On 27 April.                     On Friday morning.

On Thursday                   In winter                                               

On his  Birthday            At 12.45 p.m.                                

On Mothers day             At the end of the day/meeting.

In 1985                               At  Christmas (but on Christmas day)                                

In January/Summer    In the morning/Evening               

On 10 July                         At night
