V-J Day Kiss in Times Square Christmas Ornament

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!
Sincerely, Dianne Weller — Owner, Ornamentshop.com

8/14/2014 - "I am so happy with the ornaments. They are adorable! I love all the options I have to purchase an ornament specific to each grandchild. We have given ornaments to each child for years and have traditionally purchased in-store ornaments. But Ornament Shop items can be personalized instead of just having the year on them. We will purchase from you from now on. We have 8 grandchildren so I will be doing a lot of shopping in the years to come. Marsha S."

11/9/2014 - "I loved the ornaments. They were just what I wanted. Yes I would recommend your sight to everyone. You are the only place that I have gotten ornaments from. I have been getting them from you for a least the last five years. I just wished you had more of the gma and gpa ones. I have 18 grandchildren and can never find one with that many things on it to personalize. Thank you Pat Ehlers"

8/5/2014 - "I love Ornament Shop! I have given my kids ornaments every year and am now giving them to my grandkids. They look forward to them every year and the quality and personalization of Ornament Shop's ornaments is fabulous! Rebecca C. "

6/30/2014 - "I buy ornaments for family members each year to represent a memorable event for them. I buy most of them at Ornament Shop because they almost always have ornaments that fit the bill. I really appreciated the 20% off sale. The quality is excellent. I especially like the personalization. Barrie F."

8/8/2014 - "I have been purchasing Christmas ornaments for my grandchildren for about 4 years. They have been very happy with my choices. I try to select items that go along with what their life/interests/occupations are. They range in ages from 11 to 27. I have purchased ornaments each year since they were born. I only wish that I had found Ornament Shop many years earlier, it would have made my shopping much easier and the selections much better (and sometimes cheaper!) Can't remember just how I found the shop, but am very happy that I did. Ann F."
