Rachel is excited to visit her Italian grandmother, with her fine perfumes in fancy bottles, but she worries about how she and her parents will celebrate Hanukkah when Nonna and her family celebrate Christmas. Her parents tell her they have it all arranged, and even give her a special gift to bring along: a menorah where each branch is shaped like a person, one of the Maccabees -- and all of them girls! But after a long, exhausting plane flight, Rachel forgets her special menorah on the plane. Fortunately, Nonna has just the right solution, showing Rachel that you can celebrate Hanukkah everywhere...and that people who love you make it that much more special.
