Written 300 years later denies the oral tradition

A fundamental aspect of basic Judaism 101 is that our legislation and history etc. was transmited from generation to generation orally. Then when it was no longer tenable the "masora" as it is called was written down in the Mishnea and expanded in the Gemorah/Talmud. Your ignorant, scoffing comment puts you in the John Carey/ Baruch Obama camp of Jewish expertise. Buba Misah? In this context the burden of proof is on you.

Gifts are 100% FINE

Many rabbis say that the holiday gifts actually came from us first.

The Ponovez Rav, Rav Yosef Shlomo Kahaneman said that after the Greeks forbade the Jewish children from learning Torah, their parents had to "bribe" them withgifts to get them to learn once again. Giving gifts on Chanukah commemorates that aspect of the Chanukah miracle.

Indeed, children should be told when receiving gifts that it is for this reason and that they are expected to increase their Torah learning because of the gifts.
