    in or on

    Dear teachers,

    I came across the sentence 'In a rainy day.... '. Why isn't it written as 'on a rainy day'?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    It sounds wrong, but it's hard to say for sure without the context. Can you quote the whole sentence?

    The whole sentence is "You shouldn't go out in a rainy day".

    I don't think the context makes it any more correct.
