You can move pictures from one Facebook Album to another, but only one at a time as far as I can tell.  Here’s the official help article on the topic:

To move photos between albums you’ve created:

  1. Go to the album the photo is in now
  2. Click Edit at the top of the page
  3. Hover over the photo you want to move and click the arrow in the top right corner
  4. Select Move to other album and move the photo to an album you choose from the dropdown menu

This option is only available for albums you have created. All of your photos can be moved except for photos uploaded in a multi-photo upload or the album cover photo.

If you have a lot of pictures to move, it may be easier to delete the album on Facebook, then re-upload them with Picasa Facebook Uploader.  When the Facebook uploader stops for ‘Choose Upload Options’ click the Album dropdown arrow and choose the existing Christmas 2012 album.

Does that help?
