Shabbos Before Yud Shvat

As Chassidim know, we get called to the Torah on the Shabbos before Yud Shvat, the Freidiker Rebbe's Histalkus. (Yud Shvat is also the Kabalas HaNesius of our Rebbe, but the Aliya is for the Yahrtzeit.)
This year, Yud Shvat is on Shabbos, so there is some confusion among those in the Lubavitch circles, as to when to be called to the Torah.
I consulted a holy Rabbi, who told me that he is planning to get an Aliyah just next Shabbos, on Yud Shvat itself.
