* The official "pardoning" of White House turkeys is an interesting tradition that possibly goes back to President Lincoln's 1863 clemency to a turkey recorded in an 1865 dispatch. Reports of turkeys as gifts to American presidents can be traced to the 1870s. After 1981 the practice of sending the annual presentation turkey gifted to the White House to a farm became the norm and the turkey ceremony also became a source of satire and humour for reporters.
