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.

I did not see the items and they will not be opened until Christmas so I do not know the condition they were in. But if their items are as good as their service, I am sure they will be fine.Sally B."
