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.

10/4/2016 - "We returned from our 2 week vacation and our postal carrier delivered our mail....Oh my I was elated over the ornaments I ordered and received....they were very high quality and since I buy an ornament for each of our 9 grandkids, 4 great grandkids and neighbors I have never been disappointed in any of the ornaments....still have a few to purchase but trying to decide which one will fit their 'memory-of-this-year'. Thanks for making these quality ornaments available for my family to cherish for years to come.... Margo PS: want to commend an extraordinary employee, who noticed an error I made....I placed an order for my 'new' great granddaughter's first ornament, I was unaware that it was for 2015 and she was born May 20th, 2016.....she made me aware of my error and placed my order 'on hold' until the 2016 ornament was available....sorry I do not remember her name, but my thanks and appreciation go out to her....."
