In a nod to swing state Pennsylvania, turkeys Liberty and Bell will appear at the White House's annual turkey pardoning this week. This long-standing tradition has become a symbol of Thanksgiving and an opportunity for the president to showcase his lighter side.
The birds were hatched in July on a farm near Willmar, Minnesota, that's part of the Jennie-O Turkey Store, a subsidiary of Hormel. They were carefully selected for their appearance and temperament, ensuring a smooth and photogenic event.
Thanksgiving is a time to gather with loved ones, reflect on what we're thankful for, and enjoy a little break from school. And who could forget the presidential turkey pardoning ceremony? It has become a beloved tradition that brings joy and laughter to households across the nation.
