People say "Bless you" when you sneeze because when you sneeze, your heart stops for a millisecond.

Well here where i live I say "salu" all the time. That's like wishing the person good health because it means good health. Its not the same as God bless u but i use it a lot. What I also use a lot is "Dios kri'e". This means God care for this person.

I do once in awhile not all the time. I didn't know that the heart stops while you sneeze, that is just so interesting.

I was always taught to say "bless you" when a person sneezes. But what if that person isn't religious? Most people don't realize it because "bless you" is so overused now.
