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)

    Is there a reason "bears sleep for the winter" is not currently accepted? (20/05/2020)

    why not 'over winter', itøs a time period so in English 'over' is acceptable as in 'a sleep over' not 'a sleep in' which is entirely different.

    Or during the winter?
