    Long ago the people had certain days for doing certain things and down to the present day some people still continue it.
    Monday for health
    Tuesday for wealth
    Wednesday the best day of all
    Thursday for crosses
    Friday for losses
    Sneeze on Monday, sneeze for danger
    Sneeze on Tuesday, you will meet a stranger
    Sneeze of Wednesday sneeze for a letter
    Sneeze on Thursday, something better
    Sneeze on Friday, sneeze for sorrow
