The kiss that changes everything + 25 other pics of the week

Two female sailors in the US have became the first same-sex couple to share the age-old “first kiss” on the pier after one of them returned from 80 days at sea. It was the first time on record that a same-sex couple has been chosen to kiss after a return, according to the Navy.

That’s in the week in pics, along with the Christmas cards from the Obama and the Kardashian families, the photo shopping US department store Macys thought no one would notice (but everyone did) and the famous pop star who announced her engagement.
