If you think Thursday is Turkey Day, you are wrong.

Today is Turkey Day, at least for this pair of lucky gobblers.
Each year a turkey slated to become turkey and gravy for White House guests receives a presidential pardon.
Normally the lucky bird is sent to live out his life in a local petting zoo, but there is a change in itinerary this year.
40 pound "Snowball" will be sent on a jumbo jet to Disneyland and be given the royal treatment as Grand Marshall in the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
They are also sending along a backup bird.
I suppose that is just in case the poor thing can't take the excitement. I'm thinking they would rather be sent to the petting zoo.
