If you took a group of people who grew up in the Garden State and put them in a room together, they'd likely have an endless supply of stories about what it's like to be born and raised here.

The same seems to hold true if you give New Jerseyans and hashtag and set them loose on social media.

If you've been on Twitter Sunday, you've probably noticed hundreds of posts about #GrowingUpInJersey. It's not clear how the hashtag got started or why it's exploding in the Twitterverse, but there's no denying that reading the tweets will bring back memories of what it's like to be raised as a Jersey native.

Here are some #GrowingUpInJersey tweets we can all relate to. Have fond memories of the Garden State during your youth? Use the hashtag and tweet @NJ1015.
