Change to Capture Date

I'm not sure how it happened but somehow the date got changed in my camera from 2024 to 2023.  All 364 pictures that I took today had a capture date of 01/18/23.  I know that I can't fix the capture time in Lightroom Classic.  I know how to fix them one file at a time in Adobe Bridge.  Is there any way that I can fix all 364 pictures without having to do it one file at a time?  Any ideas would save me a great deal of time and would be greatly appreciated.

To build on @johnrellis  reply for future readers: In the Lightroom Classic preferences there is an option to write capture time changes to the raw file itself, so not create an xmp sidecar file for it. I do this all the time. It's in the link John gave.

GoldingG, Thanks for responding.  I checked out Metadata/Edit Capture Time.  It looks like this process creates an .xmp sidecar file.  I've never used sidecar files so far in Lightroom so I'm not sure that's the way I want to go.  When I tried editing multiple files it adjusted the time as well as the year.  The capture time was then off by an hour or so.  All I want to adjust is to change the year from 2023 to 2024.  Thanks for the suggestion though.  I may have to just bite the bullet and edit the time one file at a time using Adobe Bridge.
