Winter meetings two weeks before winter.

How did these meetings get to be known as winter?  It's still fall.

google search:


... off-season meetings during December dates back to 1876 ... The Winter Meetings became an annual event in 1901.

Yeah, but why are they called winter?  Maybe they were originally held closer to or even after the start of winter.  But since that would be just a few days before Christmas it seems unlikely.

Anyone know?
