Clarification on celebrating Masses on December 31, 2017

Some questions have arisen regarding how to celebrate Masses on the weekend of December 30, 31, and January 1 (Feast of the Holy Family & Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God).  From the General Norms for the Liturgical Year and Calendar, when several celebrations fall on the same day, the one with the highest rank is celebrated (no.60).  This would seem to suggest that the evening Masses of December 31 would be celebrated as vigil Masses for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God; a solemnity would rank higher than a feast, with the liturgical “day” beginning with the vigil Mass(es).  However, because the Solemnity is not a holy day of obligation this year, this means that afternoon/evening Masses on December 31 are for the Feast of the Holy Family, the Sunday celebration. Therefore, the Masses for Mary, Mother of God are only offered on January 1, 2018.
