Mensagem:  Hi guys. I┬┤m a little puzzled by a preposition which has really made me lose my temper. I work for a school with many branches all over the country and they make us tell students that the right way to say "no natal" is on Christmas. Well, I had already studied that and couldn┬┤t find sthing like "I eat turkey on Christmas".Instead I found "I eat turkey on Christmas day". I asked an aussie that question n he told that it could be an "americanism", an adaptation, really typical of americans... Well, help me please. Oh!Almost forgot, the "store" could me the same that "supermarket" without saying "grocery store"

bye
