Why Do We Sneeze Three Times?

Answer

Most people believe that sneezing three times in a row is a sign of good luck or that a letter is coming. However, this has nothing to do with luck or anything superstitious but is the relief of an irritation in the nose by the body. We sneeze according to the number of times it takes for an irritation or allergy to be solved and it is not a rule that we must sneeze three times.
