Why Do People Say God Bless You When You Sneeze?

Can some one please tell me?

Report as

Because supposedly when you sneeze your soul leaves your body and gives the devil a chance to get in.

Because the sneeze is the only way to expel the devil from your nostrils, and when he tries to crawl back in, he can't get through all those blessings. Didn't you know that?

Because your heart briefly pauses. Or as they said skips a best. It's a prayer to God that your heart continues. In other God blessed you by allowing your heart to continue beating
