President Obama Pardons Turkey

Today, in the tradition of numerous presidents before him, President Obama pardoned two turkeys. They will act as marshals at tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day parade in Disneyland. President George H. W. Bush was the first to officially pardon turkeys before Thanksgiving. Prior presidents were also given turkeys, but as President Obama mentions, many chose to eat their turkeys rather than to pardon them.

I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
