People Who Say “God Bless You”

Why can’t you just say “bless you”?

Comments

  1. Why say it at all? The custom of saying "god bless you", and, of late, "bless you", after a sneeze comes from various superstitions regarding the need for a blessing from god when sneezing. Personally, I am irritated by people who say it when I sneeze, and I'd prefer them to ignore it and move on. It's caused by dust, allergies or a virus, not evil spirits.
