1. A term used to describe something that is cool and exciting, or just generally something you would want to experience.
2. In literal terms, it means if something is on fire, or catches fire.
John: That party last night was lit!
Dave: Yeah, it was pretty nice! Let's go to more parties like that!
Dave: I... might have accidentally lit it on fire while cooking breakfast...
