I am guessing that everyone loves yard ornaments. Just take a drive around the neighborhood and look in peoples yards. You will probably see yard ornaments of all kinds from owls to frogs and most of them are solar powered in some way. Needless to say my favorite saying is (Yard ornaments are COOL). By the way be sure you take your drive around the neighborhood at night to get the full effect.
You may find a lot of people put up string lights at Christmas and somehow we never get around to taking them down after the holidays are over. They then become household accent lighting and then you have already got a start on next Christmas just a little early. Why not some solar string lights? They work great for both applications. For Christmas decoration as well as decorative accent lighting all year round.
