Hello,
I've had a look at them all and I've added a few suggestions.

At 9:00 am This is fine though we write "am" not "Am".
In the morning or In morning "In the morning" is correct.
At night This is fine.
At late night or late in the night I think "Late at night" would be better here.
I promise I will complete this project by next Tuesday. This is okay but I would write "I promise that I will have completed this project by next Tuesday."
He was born on 29th December 1988. Do i I need to place comma between month, date, and year? No, you don't.
In November This is fine.
In summer or In the summer, which one is accurate? Well both are right, it's down to personal choice really but I would recommend that you write "In summer".
On Christmas day "Day"
On Birthday No, it should be "On [my/his/your/John's] birthday
On Christmas Eve Fine.
On Halloween Day This doesn't really exist.
At Halloween Fine.
At present Fine.
At times Fine.
At this time Fine.
At the same time Fine.
On weekend or At weekend (This always confuses me) Well we would say "At the weekend" though "On the weekend" isn't necessarily wrong.
At Christmas Fine.
At bedtime Fine.
At breakfast Fine.
At lunchtime Fine.
At dinnertime Fine.
At noon Fine.
On Monday Morning "morning"
In afternoon, In the afternoon "In the afternoon"
In Evening, In the evening In the evening"
From time to time Fine.
At sunrise Fine.
At sunset Fine.
At moonrise I have never really heard of "moonrise" but it works on principle.
At 9'O clock. Sometimes, it is also used like this way " I will be there at sharp 9'o clock." Well we would actually say "I will be there at 9 o'clock sharp." "Sharp" here means "on the dot" or "exactly".
Early in the morning Fine.
In the same year Fine.
At midnight Fine.
In the middle of the night Fine.
In the 21st century Fine.
In the 1990s Fine.

Hello

on Halloween day seems OK to me. Perhaps it's only North American.

at the weekend
on the weekend (we never say 'at the weekend' in American English)

Hello,
Thank you for writing your comments and suggestions.
I always used on the weekend in the sentences until one of my native clients asked me to change it to " At the weekend." Should I use both or just at weekend?
Late at night seems ok to me, but a British writer said that It was not right. Now I write late in the night, please suggest which one is better to use.

Here are more prepositions of time for you to check if they are accurate.
Once in a while
In time, how to use it?
Please send me work on time otherwise I will not take it.
In a minute
Wait a while, is it correct to use?
In seconds
During the session
from now to onwards
