A uniquely American tradition for a uniquely American holiday (from wcco.com):
After being pardoned, the [two] turkeys will jet to Disneyland to lead the Main Street Parade, then live the rest of their days inside the California park.
“They are the luckiest and happiest birds on the face of the earth,”
Rothfork said. “They’re lucky because they're getting pardoned and they’re happy because they're going to Disneyland.”
To get the turkeys ready for the Disney parade crowds, their handlers have been tossing handfuls of confetti at them and repeatedly playing the Disney theme song at full volume.
