Which President Made Turkey Pardoning An Annual Event?
Turkey pardoning has been an American tradition for many years. One president made it a staple to the thanksgiving celebrations. Over the years each president would celebrate this event at the white house as part of the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation.
The turkey that is pardoned is usually picked out from the National Turkey Federation and sometimes it is picked out from the chairman's own farm. There are many requirements for the turkey for it to be picked such as the breed and the weight.
