Pushing back my period

I am expecting my period over New Years this year and am on Yaz Birth Control Pills.  Obviously this is a big problem because I'm going out and do not want to deal with it.  I know that it is possible to skip my period by not taking the 4 sugar pills at the end of the pack and go straight into my new pack, however, I do not like the idea of skipping my period all together.  Is it possible to just push my period back a week?  A friend of mine told me I could skip the sugar pills, start a new pack for 4 days, then take the 4 sugar pills that I skipped earlier, get my period, and then pick up from where I left off with the new pack on day 5 of the active pills.  Would this be a good idea or would it be better to skip my period all together?  Thanks
