Hanukkah in Alaska is unlike anywhere else.

Snow piles up over the windows. Daylight is only five hours long. And one girl finds a moose camped out in her backyard, right near her favorite blue swing. She tries everything to lure it away: apples, carrots, even cookies. But it just keeps eating more tree It's not until the last night of Hanukkah that a familiar Jewish holiday tradition provides the perfect-and surprising-solution.
