I think it's safe to say that the popular piece "LOL Cats" has reached cult status. Although some people have yet to "get" the original, a variety of spinoffs have surfaced to keep the tradition alive. College Humor contributer Elaine Carroll has created a Christmas counterpart called LOL Santa.

But as Christmas nears, I realize that I tend to start paying attention to the things that truly matter in my life— my family, my friend (me), and my money. So to continue with that sentiment, I've moved away from Carroll's shallow, materialistic vision of the LOL Christmas spirit and have applied it towards the roots of the season: LOL Christmas Tree*.

*Sorry, Jesus.
