    preposition before dates

    I'm a bit confused in using preposition before dates. Can you please state the general rule in using preposition based on the following sentences:

    1. Before a past/previous date ( _____ January, 2004)
    2. On a future date (___ Sundays; _____ January, 2006)
    3. On complete dates (____ January 31, 2003; ____ January 31, 2006)

    Thank you so much
