How do I say "First week of December" in German ?

Im Dezember ersten Wochenendes ging ich einkaufen.

share|improve this question

Erste Dezemberwoche

Your sentence would look like this:

In der ersten Dezemberwoche ging ich einkaufen.

Right. By the way, "im Dezember ersten Wochenendes" is wrong. – Black Dec 21 '13 at 11:17
But one can say ' Im Dezember letzten Jahres' , right? – DerPolyglott33 Dec 21 '13 at 21:06
Yes. Mind the difference that Jahres ist the greater entity here. If you want to do something similar with Woche, this will work: „In der ersten Woche des letzten Dezembers“. The article des is needed here while it can be left out with letzten Jahres. You can also say „Im Dezember des letzten Jahres”, which would semantically equivalent. – flyx Dec 21 '13 at 23:15
