As I am learning German on my own there are a lot of things I do not fully understand. One of those things is the use of geht um. Which I think it means something like about (it's about).
The problem is that I have seen this structure with different words but with a similar meaning (not sure though).
An Weihnachten geht es um Liebe etc.
Beim Leben geht es nicht um das Geld etc.
An Halloween geht es um Kostümierung etc.
Worum geht es an Weihnachten?
My 2 questions are:
- Is there any rule to know when to use beim or an?
- What if I leave out beim and an and just say, for example:
Weihnachten geht es um ...
