‘‘I don’t know if Armani celebrates Christmas, but if he does, he has a good reason to be extra happy,” said Circuit Court Judge Terrence J. McGann.

Several people in the courtroom burst into applause and tears at the judge’s announcement while the monkey’s owner, Elyse Gazewitz of Rockville, bowed her head down on the table and sobbed.

‘‘This is the happiest day of my life,” Gazewitz said later. ‘‘Armani is coming home.”

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition.
