Welcome to India Mike

Your itinerary looks fine. On 25th if you start early ( around 8 am ) you can cover all the sightseeing spots mentioned in your post within 4 hrs. So after lunch you may visit Singshore Bridge & Changey waterfall on that day.

Thanks for your reply...but what do you think about north Sikkim weather ( I can understand its highly unpredictable), but any knowledge from your side based on your experience.
Do your think it's preferable to travel to North Sikkim on personal basis ( not shared one)

You can surely reach Yumthang valley . Also road up to Thangu , on the way Gurudongmar should be open. Now it's really tough to predict if everything would be okay after Thangu. High altitude places.. Snowfall previous night may block the road. But let's hope for the best

How many of you are in the group ?

Then you may go for the shared option ( if you are a budget traveller ). That would be a much cheaper option. A 2n/3d north Sikkim trip during Christmas costs something around 16/17k in an exclusive cab & approx 6-7k for two in shared cab.

What would be your personal recommendation - a shared one or a personalized one for north Sikkim ( let's keep the money aspect aside).
