God Bless You

A very interesting superstition I found out. Moreover kind of more of a normal day to day thing we all do. Saying "God Bless You" after someone sneezes. 

This is something that has become a somewhat common practice in day to day life. Any idea why?
Well, with a grim origin, the habit of saying “God bless you” comes from the time when the black plague devastated Europe because sneezing was one of the first symptoms. The saying was simply a way to wish the sick person the best of luck with his condition.
