Hogyan kell lefordítani az alábbi frázist?

"December elejétől kezdve"

As far as I remember, the phrase "vmitől kezdve" means "at the beginning of something". Then how about "vmi elején"? Is there any difference between them?

    December elejétől kezdve: since the beginning of December.
    "Valami elejétől kezdve" means "since the beginning of something" (if you refer to time). In a broader context (and not as a time expression): (starting) from the beginning of something.
    "Valami elején" is "at the beginning of something".
    One more correction: "phrase" is "kifejezés" or "szófordulat" instead of "frázis".
