on / in the weekend
 

Hello,

I am little confused: which is more correct:

"What do you usually do in the weekend?" or 

What do you usually do on the weekend?"

Thanks in advance!

I believe we say "at the weekend".  I always do. However, Americans tend to use "on the weekend".

Mena is right. In America, we say "on the weekend" more often than "at the weekend".

However, "over the weekend" would be an absolute winner here. "During the weekend" is also possible.

Cheers,
