Christmas Eve in Zurich

I am a mom traveling with my 3 kids (ages 20, 19, 17).
We only have one day, Christmas Eve, in Zurich.
It is getting close and googling around for info still has me confused, so I'd love some input, please.
I want it to be a very special Christmas Eve, but am wondering...

  1. Are most places closed on Christmas Eve?

  2. What very nice hotel would you recommend for just one night?

  3. What very nice restaurant would you recommend for a memorable Christmas Eve dinner?
    Or is there a dinner cruise on a boat on Christmas Eve?

  4. We are arriving by train in early morning Christmas Eve from Lucerne, then flying out Christmas morning.
    Is there a day tour that would make the most of our time there? I read about tuk-tuk tours, any thoughts on those?

I am willing to spend whatever it takes to make this the best day of our trip. This is not a budget day for us.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
