The second one. Although a day encompasses a period of time, when referred to in this specific way, you should use 'on'. examples: on thursday, I went to school on new year's day, we celebrated on my anniversary, I went to the city but ... during the evening ... during the day ... during the summer ...

Hello E.T, Here you say : "On my birthday....." If you used 'during my birthday' it will rather be: "During my birthday party .." and you will mention events or incidents happening during the time your party took place as in : "During my birthday party ,we danced and laughed a lot."
