Why is it om rather than i here?

Mod

    Om is used when referring to specific time periods (with the exception of months, which use i)
    For example: Jeg rejser til Danmark om en uge (I'm travelling to Denmark on Monday)
    Jeg rejser til Danmark i December (I'm travelling to Denmark in December)

    Yes they do, but apparently only in that specific winter.

    Question of clarification: why is it "i December" but "om vinteren"? What's the difference, from a grammatical standpoint?
