Kerchoo! God Bless You!

One of the theories behind saying “God bless you” after a sneeze comes from the days of the Black Plague…when a sneeze was the first symptom to indicate someone had contracted the disease.

Another superstition is that when a person sneezes, they are expelling the devil.

Not sure what the story is with this little baby.
