By the way, do NOT drive into Zurich with your car tomorrow. The entire canton Zug uses this day to do Christmas shopping there.

Why?
Why what?
Why do they use the day shopping in Zurich?
Because not all are catholic or actively religious there after all (I used to live there).

Why not drive into Zurich? Because they all come by car - it's a jammed. So if it's possible to avoid it, traditionally the "Züricher" avoid it.
