    Default in/on cold winter days

    Carrying the heavy boxes made me sweat even in/on cold winter days.

    Can 'in' also be used in this context, or some other context?

    And in 'Keep warm during/in/on cold winter days' are all three prepositions fine?

    Thank you in advance.

    I would use "on". I might use "during" but not often. I would not use "in".
