Texas. More than 27 million people. 268,581 of the most amazing square miles on Earth.

It's our home, and no matter where we are, Texas is where home always will be.

Being born and raised in Texas comes with a lot of different aspects -- random knowledge about particularly random things, an upbringing built on "yessir and yes ma'am" and how to properly shoot a gun.

And there's so much more. There's something particular special about not just Texas, but about the people who are from Texas. And if you're from Texas, we know you can identify with most -- if not all -- of these things.

Which one comes the most naturally to you? Let's find out.

You know you're from Texas if ...

1. You've experienced all four seasons in four days.
