Every year, the president pardons a Turkey for Thanksgiving. The bird is donated by the National Turkey Federation, an unofficial sponsor of this modern-day tradition. The origins of this pardoning varies but it officially started with George H. W. Bush, in response to the protests of animal rights activists (Lincoln, Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan spared turkeys on their own, without making it an annual tradition). But the tradition has often been called a mockery: most pardoned turkeys die within a year of being granted a reprieve anyway.

Hardly anything escapes from politics in this city, included our beloved holidays.
