    Default During the day of...

    Hi,

    I'm looking for arguments for when to say "during the day of..." instead of "on the day of...".

    When and why would I use the former?

    Default Re: During the day of...

    Hello Ulysses,

    Consider the first three examples on this page of googles:

    1. During the Day of Silence in 2007, MassResistance helped organize a counter-event

    2. During the day of 31st October - 53 patrols involving 145 sorties

    3. Where are the Redeemed During the Day of the Lord?

    Each usage is different.

    What do they suggest to you?

    All the best,

    MrP
