Perhaps because nuts are easily stored, are high in protein, and are often harvested in the fall. The harvesting period for chestnuts, for instance, is mid-September to late-October; for almonds, it’s from late August to late September. Nuts can also be easier to harvest (chestnut burrs simply fall from their trees).
Nuts also have a long, traditional association with winter, especially in the West (Christmas, the Nutcracker, etc). For more information on the traditions of nuts and wintertime, see here.
