Global News published this video item, entitled “Trump pardons Iowa turkey “Corn” in Thanksgiving tradition” – below is their description.

U.S. President Donald Trump pardoned an Iowa-farm turkey named Corn on Tuesday after a poll on the White House website decided he’ll receive the presidential pardon in this year’s annual tradition. Corn, alongside Cob, another Iowa turkey, checked into the Willard Intercontinental Hotel on Monday ahead of the pardon, a luxury hotel in Washington, D.C. long accustomed to receiving political dignitaries and celebrities. The pair were raised by Turkey Federation Chairman Ron Kardel, a sixth-generation Iowa farmer, on a farm near Walcott, Iowa. Both turkeys will return to Iowa where they will live the rest of their days at the Iowa State University’s Animal Science department.

In This Story: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
