Sneezles

Here’s a rhyme that my mam always says when she sneezes:

One’s a wish
Two’s a kiss
Three’s a letter
Four’s something better.

I just sneezed four times in a row. Something good must be going to happen this afternoon.

I always wondered what it meant if you sneezed more than four times in a row. My guess is you’ve got a really bad cold 😉

  1. In Italian, it’s Salute for the first sneeze, Soldi for the second and Amore for the third. Health, money, love. I always try to go for all three. I was never taught what the 4th would get, though!

  2. My Mom always said:
    One’s a wish,
    Two’s a kiss,
    Three’s an inspiration.
    Four’s a letter,
    Five’s something better.
    And I don’t know what’s after 5, lol!

  3. The way I leerned it from my Scottish folks:
    One’s a wish
    Two’s a kiss
    Three’s a dissappointment
    Four’s a letter
    Five is better
    and six…
    we;; nobody knows six, but we surmise that you have a cold or allergies or something….
