Two Toronto residents staying in the city over Xmas for the first time. What if any are the quintessential entertainments (restaurants, masses, sporting events, traditions, whatever) taking place in or around Toronto on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St Stephens' Day?

The husband and I have lived in Toronto since 2005, so are well versed in things to do around town at other times of the year, but go home every Xmas to my parents in Ireland for two or three weeks.
We can't make that work this year and rather than bunker down at home by ourselves are looking for some suggestions from the natives as to things that are worth doing and seeing here in the few days around the 25th, whether the church that has a great reputation for feel-good midnight masses, or restaurants that pack out on Xmas Eve, or charity swims that attract a crowd on Christmas morning ... that type of thing, fun events that "everyone knows about" that will get us out of the house. Our motley crew of immigrant friends are not much help. We have a car and no family to visit so are open to any decent suggestions or links to same, especially as this may be the last time we're here for the holidays for a few years.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
