    The sneeze..according to Mexican culture

    Post by stan_da_man on Sun 07 Sep 2008, 1:03 am

    As we all know, in Japanese culture, the sneeze is usually a sign that someone is speaking ill of you. But in Mexico, it holds a more sinister meaning. When one sneezes, instead of saying bless you, people will say sancho or sancha. It's because it is believed that sneezing is a sign that your spouse is cheating on you. And in Costa Rica, if your ears start burning or itching, then someone is speaking bad about you. Interesting, eh?

    I've never heard anything like that before about the sneezing. Actually, that is sort of interesting. I've heard of the ears burning thing, tho. I think almost every culture has that one. Nose itching means someones coming. No idea where that came from.

    What's the history behind the sinister sneeze?

    I do not know, unfortunately..but my mom said that in Mexican culture, they say sancha or sancho, which is what they call the person your spouse is sleeping with.

    that stuff is pretty crazy, i'm gonna have to ask my mom about the mexican sneezing thing...(my momma's mexican)
    Personally, I've never heard of it--or at least my family doesn't do that. They just say "salud" meaning "health"
    It's interesting tho...
    My family does say though that if your eyes are burning or if you end up getting a stye it's cos you saw someone naked who you shouldn't have. LOL
    But that may just be my weird family. ^o^
