2 Turkey Pardons Coming Right Up

Y’all!!! I just can’t even!! LOL🤣 This just cracks me up.

All these years I never knew this was a thing until my Dad and I were talking about Thanksgiving and turkey.

“The turkeys arrived at the Willard Hotel on Sunday to enjoy a luxurious stay in a historic D.C. suite ahead of Tuesday’s time-honored White House tradition in which the sitting president publicly spare 2 lucky birds from becoming Thanksgiving dinner.”

These hobnobbing turkeys stay in the hotel until they go to “Gobbler’s Rest,” an agricultural education facility at Virginia Tech University.

This tradition goes back to President Lincoln. His son grew attached to a turkey that happened to be brought to the White House and Lincoln unofficially pardoned the turkey from his demise and so a tradition began.

There will be no “Bread & Butter” served up this holiday season but I do love your siblings 😉

Have a great day y’all!

Big hugs,

Nicole💗
