The Christmas Song I Sing Once I Am Gone

Once we are out of Budapest, I usually find it is safe to sing this US Christmas classic, which was written for the movie Holiday Inn, by Irving Berlin. Snow is lovely to watch as it falls from the sky, but I hate going out when it is around.

White Christmas Lyrics
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white 

With this being an unusually inclement winter, we are biting our nails. Our flight is tomorrow. The route is Sunday December 19, 2010 1:00 pm Budapest to Munich, Munich to Tokyo, Tokyo to Auckland. Our scheduled arrival is December 21, 2010 at 12:35 in the afternoon.

Notice I have scheduled. The Munich airport as well as a number of others in Germany were closed due to snow yesterday. Munich it looks like, opened late in the afternoon. As of now, Lufthansa is showing our flight as a GO, but it started snowing here again just within the hour. Will we make it out of here?
