    Word

    I want to see you for / on the christmas.
    In this case, any difference between two Prep.?

    Faults are thick where love is thin.
    Why not "when", but "where"?

    Please.

    'on' means on the one day, 12/25; 'at' means during the Xmas season; 'for' isn't all that common to my mind, but it might suggest that seeing you would be a great present for me.

    The two are very similar in nature, Puzzle.

    where - at the place [in a relationship] love is thin.

    when - at the time love is thin.
