Perhaps it's because Colonel Sanders resembles Santa Claus. Perhaps it's because people realized fried chicken actually tastes better than roasted chicken. Or perhaps it's because KFC had an amazing marketing strategy, as explained here.

Some make reservations as early as October to celebrate Christmas with KFC's Christmas party bucket.
