Why do your eyes water when you yawn?

Because when we yawn our tear glands are pressed and eyes become watery.

Because as you yawn, and scrunch up your face, you're also squeezing your tear ducts, located at the corners of your eyes, closest to your nose.

Mine don't water unless I'm REALLY yawing. As in, big, sleepy yawns. Maybe you're the same. I don't really yawn big enough to trigger them.
