Same same but different: sneezing sounds

I love similarities & differences between languages and here is a good example: same action, different interpretations of the sound :sneezing_face::ear:t3:

Do you know what to say after someone just sneezed?

I always say: “Hatchi, what a pity, next flu comes closer!” :wink:

Salud! (Health). And if they sneeze three times, I first say “salud”, then “dinero” (money) and “amor” (love). It’s what you wish someone :slight_smile:

Yes, actually sneezing three times means you’re getting a cold!
And in Perú at least, it’s very rude not to wish “Salud” to someone if they sneeze! How is it in Argentina, @kjanina?
