I seem to be the bearer of bad news for Christmas seasons shooters, but what you're asking of these cameras is not possible. Pinpoints of light are incredibly hard to shoot without getting a washed out spot of light or losing everything else in the image. There is just TOO much contrast between the light and the darkness when the house lights go out.
I would suggest staging similar conditions and practicing your settings before you shoot the event live. Just like shooting the moon, avoid the urge to over-expose or you will loose all of your detail.
