    Question Preposition

    Hi! I have a doubt regarding what preposition should I use when I write:

    On summer vacation or In summer vacation.

    I know it's on vacation but does the preposition change when I put a season before the word vacation?


    Thanks!!!

    Default Re: Preposition

    A typical essay for returning students: What I Did on My Summer Vacation.

    In the US, we would not use "in." However, prepositions can change as you move around the world, so I can't speak for elsewehere.
