The White House does Thanksgiving right. This year the Obamas are celebrating with a quiet dinner at the White House, but here are a few of the public festivities to get you in the holiday spirit.

Probably the most popular and beloved White House Thanksgiving tradition is the pardoning of the national turkey. As usual, Sasha and Malia were on hand while their dad made the official pronouncement. Watch the event below or just scroll down to see who won.

Of course, for the Obamas, Thanksgiving isn't just about a big meal, it's about giving back.
