Where for Christmas Time in Austria and Switzerland

I am will be traveling with my girlfriend to Austria and Switzerland around Christmas time this year for approximately 10 days. I have not purchased any tickets yet, but I am wondering if there are any dont-miss events, attractions, general experiences, etc. that we want to see around Christmas time.

We normally like to visit local pubs, go to great events (Oktoberfest, Running of the Bulls, wine festivals, etc.), eat local street food, go to great restaurants, visit markets. We love spending a couple afternoons drinking with locals, experiencing the culture, etc. We are not big museum people, but do like the great churches and museums of the world. 

Since we will be away from home, any specific things to do on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

I love Zermatt for this time of year. Great snow, ski and snowboard and an ice cave if you take the lifts up to the top! There are a ton of cute restaurants and I love staying at Cervo Zermatt and Coeur des Alpes Hotel Zermatt, which has a direct view of The Matterhorn from your bedroom window!

Around New Years, Lech am Arlberg is a pretty amazing place to go.  Ski town with great apres-ski, etc.  I would highly recommend it.
