Arriving London on Boxing Day - or not?

I have a trip booked for the end of year and it just occurred to me that I'm arriving LHR on the morning of December 26th. I'll have a week in Europe and the original plan was a few days in London, Paris, and then Brussels. However, the realization that I'll be in London on Boxing Day (a bit of a foreign concept to an American) leads to think I might better served re-routing a bit.

I can't change my ticket so I could possibly just buy a simple one-way from LHR to Paris or other points in Europe that are fully open on the 26th and wind my way back to London later in the week.

However, am I missing something by not being in London on the 26th (or 27th and 28th)? I've been there leading up to Christmas Day but never after. If I were arriving later in the day it would probably be less of an issue as it would just be an evening, but I hate to lose a full day.
