Difference between "in the night" and "at night"
I would like to ask if there is a difference between "in the night" and "at night" and the difference between "in summer" and "in the summer".
At night is general meaning all nights: at night I sleep; at night he dreams. In the night refers to a detailed period: in the night of 1999 she got married; in the night before his examination he couldn't sleep. In summer is general and refers to every summer: I go on holiday in summer; I don't work in summer. In the summer is more specific: in the summer of 2012 I went to Greece; he was thinking of buying a new car in the summer (meaning the first summer to come)
