V-J Day Kiss in Times Square Christmas Ornament
Personalized Christmas Ornament
Dimensions: 2 1/4" x 5"
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!
I was very pleased with the Navy ornament that I received! It was actually for myself as my grandson just joined the US Navy, and I had added a few Navy ornaments to my tree this year to honor him. I will probably order another one for my daughter.

7/28/2016 - "I love the Ornament Shop! Their website is easy to use and I always find what I'm looking for even though sometimes I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I buy ornaments for my children every year and try and find something that applies to events or successes they have had during the year. Ornament Shop has such a great selection and wide variety of ornaments. I also love their personalization. It looks so good and makes my gifts extra special. I have always received my purchase quickly, especially considering it is personalized. It is packaged very well as the product is fragile and could be broken easily. I highly recommend Ornament Shop and will use them again for my ornaments. Marilee P."
