    What do you think the meanings of your two sentences are? Note my corrections to your post in red. The actual words and phrases you are querying should be enclosed in their own quotation marks and we capitalise proper nouns (Sunday, English, December, Shakespeare, Microsoft etc).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: came and came in

    I'm assuming both meanings are same.

    Re: came and came in

    As always, context is everything!

    "She came in on Sunday" might mean she came into the house, she arrived by plane/boat, she entered the supermarket or any other potential meaning involving her entering a building or arriving in a country/city on public transport.
    "She came on Sunday" simple means that she arrived somewhere on Sunday.

    Re: came and came in

    I think the preposition 'on' can be omitted for the days of the week - She came Sunday. Am I right?

    Re: came and came in

    It would be understood but in BrE, we don't tend to omit it.

    He arrived on Sunday.
    She's coming on Tuesday.

    Re: came and came in

    I'm not disputing that. I clearly stated that in BrE, we don't tend to omit it.

    Anyway, perhaps we could return to the OP's actual question.
