Why do you say "Bless you" or "God bless you" when somebody sneezes?


My children asked me, and I was not sure what to say. What's your opinion about saying "bless you" for sneezes?

    I have a different way of viewing this. To me a sneeze is releasing a wish, and saying God bless you, is in hope of gaining your wish. I like this version, which I did make up.
