My sneezing reminded me a coincidence between English and Okinawan culture.

When I was in America, my friends said to me "Bless you!" if I sneesed.
But in Japan, we say nothing if anybody sneesed.

I feel lonly when I sneeze here...

Because my hometown Okinawa has almost same culture with "Bless you!" for sneezing!

We say "くすけーひゃー!" for somebody's sneezing.

So, I just say "くすけーひゃー" for myself, after I lest Okinawa.
