The period of January and February didn't really count as months, and the Roman calendar was based on a 304 day year, based on the approximate lunar month of 29 1/2 days.
The inventor of the 304 day calendar was Romulus, twin brother of Remus - the same Romulus and Remus who founded Rome aroung 800 B. The Winter Solstice, also known as Midwinter, occurs around December 21 or 22 each year in the Northern hemisphere, and June 20 or 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.
It occurs on the shortest day or longest night of the year, sometimes said to astronomically mark the beginning or middle of a hemisphere's winter.
The word solstice derives from Latin, Winter Solstice meaning Sun set still in winter.
