  • 7. Every year, before Thanksgiving, one or two live turkeys are given to the White House. At a ceremony in the Rose Garden, the President announces that these turkeys will never be killed and eaten. Then they're sent to a farm or a park, or somewhere else they can live out their lives. This has become an American tradition but no one seems to know how this tradition started.
