Replacement phrase for "Bless you" when someone sneezes
    #13838012 - 01/23/11 06:16 PM (9 years, 10 months ago)

Anybody got one?

I was raised Catholic so I always said "bless you" when people sneezed. As I got older I distanced myself from Christianity and I started second guessing the "bless you" phrase. Then I made a friend who absolutely didn't want me to say it when he sneezed, and he sneezed a lot. So I stopped saying it, but now I find myself wanting to say *something* when someone sneezes. It seems like people appreciate it - at least as some sort of nod of the head that it's cool that they just sneezed.

Or should nothing be said? I almost feel like going back to saying "bless you" even though I think it's a bunk phrase and I know some people won't like it. What to do...

I used to talk to someone who said in her school if someone sneezed they'd say "fuck you".

Anyway, it's a dumb made up thing. If God exists I'm sure he doesn't care if that is said to somebody who just sneezed.

The French say "À tes souhaits", which means "may your dreams/wishes come true".  I personally like "Gesundheit" better though.

The expression supposedly dates back to the time of the bubonic plague. Sneezing was one of the early signs of infection, so to say "bless you" after someone sneezed was just a way of saying I hope you dont have the plague.

It's really not that big of a deal, it's not like you're making some big public pronouncement of faith. Think about it this way, when/if you say "goddamn it" after stubbing your toe or something similar, are you actually demanding god curse the offending table? It's just a turn of phrase ya know?

Buncha goddamned angsty teenagers I tell ya.
