Christmas time baby shower..... Tacky or okay???

My husband and I live a great distance from all our friends and family. We are planning on being around them all around Christmas. Our first baby is due in March so this may be the last time I see or hang out with our loved ones. If we don't have a baby shower at Christmas, we may not have one at all.... Unless of course we do an online one. I just think it's so tacky to have a baby shower during the holidays. My husband says it's okay. Thoughts? Ideas?
