Can u trace the wire(s) that are attached to them to see where they go ? Do they look factory or aftermarket that somebody put on ? If you were to add a green light and a yellow light to go along with the blue and red ones....youd be one step closer to getting in the Christmas spirit !

This may have been someone's home-brew attempt to comply with CVC 24400. Take a look for a moisture sensor on the outside of the car.
Calif vehicle code now requires headlamps to be on when windshield wipers are on. Auto makers were given a 'heads-up' on this in 1999 and several started including a relay between the WSW control and the headlamps for Calif cars back in 2000.
A couple of years ago, there were late night TV ads for after market kits to do this. IIRC, the second violation is $ 150 so this stuff had some market.
