On or In Month

Do you want to refer to a specific date? Is it 'in month' or 'on month'? In this lesson, we will learn which is correct.

"On" or "In Month" in the English grammar

Which One Should Be Used?

Both 'on + month' and 'in + month' are grammatically correct. 'On + month' is used to refer to a specific day in a month while in + month' is used to refer to a span of time covering a whole month.

On + Month

When referring to an action or event that occurred on a specific day or date of the month, we typically use 'on + month' followed by the exact date. For example:

Halloween is on October 31st.

I met him on February 5th.

I was born on December.

When the specific date is not specified and only the month is mentioned, we cannot use 'on'.

In + Month

The preposition 'in' is used to refer to longer periods of time, such as years, centuries, and months. When referring to a month, 'in + month' is a more common phrase than 'on + month' which is typically used to refer to a specific day within the month.

The documents were collected in January.

The yearly company meeting is in February.

I have a job interview in March 15th.

When the specific date is specified, we cannot use 'in'.
