    the following days

    Hello, which preposition is correct in this sentence?

    1) We're going to be his guests in the following days.
    2) We're going to be his guests on the following days.
    3) We're going to be his guests the following days.

    Or maybe all are correct and then is there any difference?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    When in is used it implies that you will be his guests at an indefinite point in the future. "On" implies that there will be a list of dates to come or that the event will occur during a specific time period in the future. The third is generally not correct, and though there are a few situations where it would be appropriate they are few and far between, I suggest that you simply stick with the first two.
