Thank you for your help.

I found the explanation about the use of 'at' in Longman dictionary.
Do we have to use at Christmas not on Christmas?

• You use at Christmas when saying that something happens during the Christmas holiday period:
I’ll see you at Christmas.
✗Don’t say: I’ll see you on Christmas.
