I think it's a wonderful gesture, but it isn't needed.

My first ex and I have one child, and I have two new children. We still alternate Christmas, depending on what leave he gets. My oldest adores her siblings, but I know she also loves waking up with the other side of the family, where she's the only grandchild Because of the age gap in siblings, your son might also enjoy being the only kid in a situation on Christmas. Little ones do tend to need and get far more attention than older kids.

The way we do it is, I will always pick up our daughter at 3 PM Christmas day and her Mom picks her up 3 PM on NYE. Working well so far for us. So she gets 2 christmases, it is all how you pitch it to the kids. Even if they think its strange at first once you start baking cookies and stuff they get right into it. We have had a huge Christmas celebration in February before and its one of the best memories we have(lost 3 months because mom was....not very nice). Kids will get excited if you get excited. Even if its christmas in January at the end of the day the kids will take it whenever as long as its fun.
