Album update & sneezing!

Hi Loves!

It's Thanksgiving week in the US and I wanna wish all my US Family and Friends a happy T-day and kickoff to the Holiday Season.

It's cold time, and you know what that means! AHHH-CHOOOOO! I always say "Bless You" when someone sneezes and the other week I was asking Soulmate, why the heck do we say that only when we sneeze, and for that matter, why do we even say that phrase? So I turned to my trusty friend Google and found some intersting history on why we say that.

Here's a few bits of info I found:

Wikipedia

Snopes

Word Origins

Do you say "Bless You" when someone sneezes, and if you do, did you know the history behind why it is said?

See you next time! 🙂

Muah,

  • I was told at school that the reason we say “bless you” when some one sneezes dates back to the black death that spread through Europe in the 15th/16th century. The first sign of catching the black death was sneezing.

  • it’s a the some as the children’s nursery rhyme.
    Ring a Ring of roses (The red marks that appeared on the skin)
    A pocket full of poses (People would carry flower pettales cos of the small of dead body’s)
    a tish you (sneeze)
    a tish you (sneeze)
    we all full down. (Drop down Dead)
