    Default on weekends / on the weekends

    Hi, me again:

    Another question to ask. I'be looked up the Net yet I still can't be sure which one is correct! It seems to be "on weekends" but I've seen both.

    Can anyone tell me which of them is correct or how to distinguish them? Thanks a lot!

    In BrE it's "at weekends" or "at the weekend".
