Why do some of us (me) come up with unusual
  (ridiculous) decorating ideas during the Winter?  

     Maybe it's the cozy (claustrophobic) warmth of
     being inside; maybe it's the short (endless) days;
     maybe it's the anticipation (longing) of Spring.

     that you might be afflicted:

1.  You think that mice stencils would be hilarious on your stairs.

2.  You come up with a clever craft project for the bathroom.
