National Thanksgiving Turkey

Americans helped to decide the presidential pardon turkey, today. President Obama held a traditional ceremony where he spared a turkey before Thanksgiving. People voted online for which turkey would take the title of National Thanksgiving Turkey. The turkeys are named “Honest” and the other turkey is named “Abe.” Abe won the contest with 56-percent of the votes. Both turkeys will spend the rest of their days living peacefully at a farm. This is the first year when voting was extended to Twitter.
