I'd assume because that's the "Christmasy" colors. Santa wears red and white, so maybe that's why. I read somewhere that they are shaped like a shepherd's cane for religious symbolism...I don't know.
Christmas isn't my holiday, but I like all kinds of candy canes, from traditional red and white to multicolored.
