National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation 2016

Every year shortly before the occasion of Thanksgiving, a ceremony known as National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation takes place at the White House wherein the President of the United States is presented with a live domestic turkey, usually of the Broad Breasted White variety which he pardons.

Obama Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon

Since 1989 during the first Thanksgiving of President George H. W. Bush, the president has granted the turkey a “presidential pardon” and thus spared the bird from being slaughtered.

Last year, President Barack Obama pardoned Caramel and Popcorn, both 40-pound turkeys from Rockingham County, Virginia.
