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.

11/16/2016 - "I have ordered ornaments for my son each year since he was in fourth grade. They always represent activities or special events that are happening in his life. He is now in college and a Junior. I used to order from hallmark but they just don't fit his needs. I was looking for Lacrosse and Math as he is a math major and your site came up on-line. Your reviews are good and your site is wonderful. I plan on using you next year as well. It will be his senior year and he will start student teaching math. and coaching. I saw lots that would fit those needs as well. Tracey"
