Louis Armstrong's 'Christmas Night in Harlem'

"Everyone will be all lit up like a Christmas tree," Louis Armstrong sings on this holiday classic written by Mitchell Parish and Raymond Scott. After he says, "lit up," Armstrong cackles knowingly. For him, being lit up meant smoking muggles, his term for marijuana.

Hempy holidays to all and to all a good joint.
