What's the key for Thanksgiving dinner?
I bet you know quite a lot of things and facts about Thanksgiving Day and its traditional dinner where the turkey and gravy sauce are the main guests. Family and friends gather and enjoy a big feast. Thanksgiving is usually the beginning of all the preparations for Christmas Day.
As we have pointed out above, the most important thing is to have a good turkey. Following a nineteenth-century tradition (although it seems not to be very clear), American people give the President some turkeys which are raised for the whole year until the day before Thanksgiving when the President must issue a pardon for one of the turkeys.
This is what has been published about these two birds:
"Caramel is a steady and deliberate bird that enjoys soybean meal and rocking out to Lady Gaga," a statement on the White House blog said. "When Popcorn is feeling peckish, he can't stop snacking on his namesake, corn, and has been known to strut around to Beyonce's 'Halo.'"
