    though, in my country we don't really say 'Bless you' but 'Wish you health' (literally speaking)but basically it has the same meaning :)

    Yes! I also say it when they cough. You may say it's being strange but I say it's just being consistent.

    Unless it's only us two, then I say it to be polite.
    But I don't believe in superstitious beliefs, so I know their soul doesn't fly out of their body when they sneeze...

    I believe, if you could keep your eyelids from closing, when you sneezed, your eyes would pop out of your skull!乂^‿^乂

    That's not superstition though.
    Whether or not it's a myth, however, I don't know.

    Nope we say "gezondheid" like the German "gesuntheid" (wishing you health)

    But to me it is no blessing when I sneeze , did you know that it is possible to break ribs when you have an allergic sneeze attack ?

    It is an automatic reaction. I presume it is indoctrinated in us from childhood.

    Generally I have been in the habit of saying "salud!" (Spanish for "health"), but once and a while I might say "Bless You". :) It depends.

    Religious people are the ones who started the 'bless you' idea as the people believed that the heart stopped during a sneeze. You had to say bless you to restart the heart.

    It is utter foolishness.

    I get very awkward when someone sneezes so I try to pretend I didn't hear it or something.
