Trisha and her family are making preparations for Hanukkah when they learn that many of their friends on neighboring farms have come down with scarlet fever and are quarantined. To ensure that their neighbors don't miss out on Christmas, Trisha's family cuts down several evergreen trees and decorates them with the carved animals that Grampa always makes for Hanukkah gifts. As she surveys the forest in their living room, Babushka dubs them "the trees of the dancing goats." Then she and Grampa deliver them in secret.
A week later, as Trisha's family is sitting down to dinner on the last night of Hanukkah, their closest neighbors arrive at the door, bearing a homemade menorah. When they light candles in the new menorah and place it next to the old one that has been burning for hours, they notice that all of the candles are the same size. It is as though the old candles haven't burned down at all. It's a miracle!
