W210 Instrument Cluster Light Bulb Replacement

I replaced my center light bulb on my 98 E320 today. Thanks to the posts which identified how to replace the bulb, I was able to replace mine.

I used a coat hanger as the special tool and had to pull harder than I thought. The replacement light bulb I got from the Mercedes dealer has a tan base. When I replaced the bad bulb, I noticed that there were three bulbs (one located directly below each lower center instrument cluster bulbs. These bulbs have a brown base. I took one out and noticed that the bulb is red.

Does anyone know what the red bulbs are for. I didn't see any reference to this in the owners manual. Will the message display scroll "Merry Christmas" on Dec. 25th?
