December 25 became the winter solstice.


In other words, the seven days became longer than the usual winter solstice, so December 25 became the winter solstice. Frankly speaking, Julius Caesar began the foolish Roman calendar from the winter solstice. Thus the seven days became longer than the usual winter solstice of January 1, so December 25 became the winter solstice.
