The belief that a sneeze should be answered by others with a verbal blessing or salutation such as ‘Bless you!’ is, as far as we can tell, almost universal, and old enough to be quoted by many classical writers.In Britain, the belief has grown up that the custom stems from the Great Plague, but it is clear that it goes back long before that, as for example in Caxton's The Golden Legend, printed in 1483, which includes the saying of God help you!orChriste help!’.Nevertheless, groundless as it is, the belief is now so well fixed in the popular mind that it counts as folklore in itself. The equally widespread idea that we say ‘bless you’ because our ancestors believed we were sneezing our soul out of our body is similarly groundless.

Similarly in Hong Kong, it is said that if you sneeze once or twice, someone is talking or gossiping about you. If you sneeze three times, then you are probably catching a cold.It is also very common for people in Hong Kong to say
"dai gut lei si" (大吉利事) or "ho geh" (好嘅), which both mean roughly bless you.

In Chinese culture, a sneeze is a sign that someone is thinking about you and you might hear some one say
"you rén xiang ni" (有人想你), which translates into "someone is thinking about you". Additionally, in China, people sometimes respond by saying "bai sui" (百岁/百歲) which is short for (祝你长命百岁) meaning "Wish you a long life of a hundred years".
