We'd like to extend to you our apologies, dear readers, as we will not have a photo gallery this week.

A big thanks to those who did send us Old School entries but ultimately we felt we did not have enough eligible entries to declare a winner.

We hope you'll find this week's assignment a little more enticing.

What is it? It feels like Christmas.

Send us something that says Christmas in the Lowcountry. We can't wait to see it.

Here are the rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to yourphotos@postandcourier.com by noon on Tuesday, Dec. 24. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels. Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
