I'm not sure if this is a question for here, or Skeptics. While it is a question do with Judaism, it is a question that is asking to prove, or disspove a claim, which is Skeptics' scope

Except that the reason that it is so strange that the Avos kept the torah before it was given, was, well, because it wasn't given yet, and no one else knew about it yet. But in the case of the Jewish people, if channuka was given at har-seni, than while the event of channuka it's self may not have happened yet, the Jewish people would have known about the mitzva and been able to keep it. However it was never said that the Jewish people at the time did keep it, until the event of Channuka actually happened, which is why there is no mishna on Channuka.

While the fact that everything was given to moshe at har-seni is a well known concept, I have a problem with it's premise, because if it were the case, shouldn't the jewish people have celebrated purim and channuka in their time? (even though it hadn't happen yet, the concept of people celebrating things before they happen isn't new. I believe there was a midrash that said that Yaakov celebrated pesach)
