I asked one of mine frn(Priest) ........................
                   How or why did saying "God bless you" become associated as an expression one says to another after the other sneezes? I've found some reasons listed below, but, somehow, I don't think any of them are very legitimate:

    * When someone sneezes his heart stops and saying "God bless you" means "I'm glad your heart started again."
    * Saying "God bless you" when you sneeze keeps the devil from flying down your throat.
    * When someone sneezes, say "God bless you and may the devil miss you."
    * When you sneeze your soul tries to escape and saying "God bless you" crams it back in (said by Millhouse in an episode of The Simpsons).

Sneeze on Monday for health,
Sneeze on Tuesday for wealth,
Sneeze on Wednesday for a letter,
Sneeze on Thursday for something better,
Sneeze on Friday for sorrow,
Sneeze on Saturday, see your sweetheart tomorrow,
Sneeze on Sunday, safety seek.

wow interesting stuff... good reasons. Ma pani bhanchu aba dekhi ehehe
I hate myself.. for loving you !!
