Turkey Pardon – American Culture

The White House turkey pardon is an annual Thanksgiving tradition. The president pardons one of two turkeys and dubs the chosen bird the official Thanksgiving turkey, although both birds are spared from the Thanksgiving table. The Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony is seen as the official beginning of the Thanksgiving holiday period. The two turkeys who are eligible for the presidential pardon this year are called Bread and Butter. A few days before the ceremony, the two turkeys travel to the Washington, D.C. and stay at a fancy hotel. Following the turkey pardon ceremony, Bread and Butter will return to their home state of North Carolina to live out the rest of their days.
