V-J Day Kiss in Times Square Christmas Ornaments

Personalized Christmas Ornament

$13.95

SKU: RU13124

The sailor kissing a nurse photograph that was captured by a photographer and published in Life magazine in August of 1945 has become a legendary symbol of the end of World War II and the joy that swept the nation. The place it occurred was Times Square on V-J Day which is Victory over Japan Day and was a mass celebration of military personnel and citizens who were so overcome with emotion that the war was finally over that a sailor spontaneously bent a nurse he didn't know back for a kiss of happiness. You can visit a replica statue of this snapshot in time when you visit Sarasota, Florida!

Dimensions: 2 1/4" x 5"
Material: Resin
NOTE: This is not a toy. It is not suitable for children to play with.


Ornaments shown on our site are personalized, as examples only, so you can see where we put the words/names you give us. Some ornaments allow you to select hair or uniform color. If there is no color choice, it is not available on that particular ornament. We will do everything possible to catch any mistakes in spelling, etc., but are not responsible if we do as you request, and it is then not correct. The ornament you see above is the way it will look when you get it, except for the personalizing instructions you give us and any optional attributes you select.
I am committed to delivering our customers the greatest selection of unique, personalized Christmas ornaments and gifts on the internet! We have over 6000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!

12/24/2014 - "I was not supposed to receive my ornament until after Christmas. I did send an email telling you the ornament was for my 82 year old mom. I had to wait to place this order late because she was having so many health issues, including surgery. A response was sent telling me you would do everything possible for it to arrive before Christmas. Today, Dec. 23rd, 2014 the ornament arrived in the mail! I cannot thank everyone enough for trying so hard just for one customer. My mom will think this is the greatest gift she's ever received and I can not thank you enough. Merry Christmas to all who work at this wonderful, caring company. Susan H."
