V-J Day Kiss in Times Square Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament

SKU: RU13124
Dimensions: 2 1/4" x 5"
Material: Resin
NOTE: This is not a toy. It is not suitable for children to play with.

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.

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 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 5000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!
Sincerely, Dianne Weller — Owner,

10/22/2017 - "Hi Dianne! My ornament came today! I love it! Can't wait to give it to my son & his family! The ornament matches the nutcracker pj's I bought my grandson! Thanks again Melanie K."

9/18/2017 - "I'd imagine this is my 9th or 10th year ordering family ornaments. I have kind of become the ornament lady in my family as everyone tends to get an ornament from me every year when it is their first holiday or for the kids. Every year I order one family ornament and one per child in my own family. Over the years you have seen me order with several names as I have been married a few times. This year I am ordering again and want to let you guys know that no matter what my life has looked like your quality products have always made our holidays amazing. Your help over the years when one or two ornaments had arrived broken has always been spot-on. I know it's been 35 years of customers who are probably mostly happy but for those who are grinches this year, I hope you guys remember that the rest of us think you are one of the best things about the holidays.Jennifer B."
