Try with Slavic KOLEDO which has connection with celebrating new year (customs) and the Sun. People that take part in celebrating Christmas still use old pagan customs and are called - KOLEDARI. Slavic word for calendar is KALENDAR

On the other hand, the Slavs could not get this word from Romans because (and according to Berlin school of history) they were not present in the Balkans at the time  however, they (Slavs) were celebrating KOLEDA long before they were converted to Christianity.

Also, Slavic languages are rich with root KLT for instance - klada, klati, kolo, okoliti, opkoliti, kleti, proklinjati, zaklinjati, klatno, kladiti, klatiti, etc.
