If DH was working away for Christmas (he was the year before last) we would do an early Chrissy where our girls open presents from DH & I. We also go all out and do a Chrissy dinner. Could you wake the kids early to open presents, that way you don't miss out or do it the night before?

I have worked the last 5 Christmas eve/day/afternoon.
If I worked morning shift, everyone was up super early so kiddo could open presents, afternoon shift was wake up about 6am because kiddo was excited. Night shift I would get home by 7:45am(our shifts have now changed to finish earlier thankfully) and I would stay up and watch kiddo do presents, cook breakfast and then head to bed for maybe 3 or 4 hours before we had to go anywhere.

If you change the date you have to own it. Not one bit of celebration on actual date if it's after it. Maybe go early so you can't be usurped.
We don't even blink on the 25th. It was harder last year and my nephew was 4 and getting smart, he counted from kinder and knew the days didn't line up but we managed to assure him it was right.
This year I've told them sometimes Santa comes on a different day for the mummy's who have to work.
