In the week when everything about the county will be celebrated on Yorkshire Day, tweeters have spoken out about growing up here.

The twitter hashtag #GrowingUpYorkshire has gone viral this week as the residents of the region celebrate everything about Yorkshire on August 1.

We’ve seen gags about the slang from serious debates over how to pronounce ‘scone’ to quirks that everyone outside the county thinks we’re all farmer folk.

One user said “#GrowingUpYorkshire The only place where ‘Mardy’ is an actual word” whilst another posted “Knowing the importance of a proper brew #GrowingUpYorkshire” with a picture of Yorkshire Tea.

Now we want to know what you think to growing up in and around the Harrogate District - tweet us @HarrogateHound with the hashtag #GrowingUpYorkshire with your witty Yorkshire ways!
