Pourquoi dit-on "à tes souhaits" à quelqu’un qui éternue ?


Autrefois, le fait d’éternuer était interprété comme un bon ou un mauvais signe, en fonction des circonstances : selon la position de la Lune, selon qu’il faisait jour ou nuit, etc.

Lorsque l’on éternuait et que les signes étaient négatifs, les peuples de l’Antiquité disaient "que Jupiter te conserve" (expression qui est devenue "que Dieu te bénisse" chez les chrétiens [1]).

L’éternuement était souvent associé à la maladie et au mauvais sort. Certaines personnes croyaient que l’âme pouvait quitter le corps pendant l’éternuement. D’autres disaient que l’éternuement était provoqué par l’expulsion d’un démon hors du corps, ou encore que le diable pouvait entrer par la bouche (pour se protéger, les gens mettaient la main devant la bouche quand ils bâillaient, et cette coutume est restée).

Parfois l’éternuement était aussi vu comme un signe de chance. Ainsi, les Grecs pensaient que le fait d’éternuer révélait la présence d’un esprit divin, auquel on pouvait adresser des voeux.

L’expression "à tes souhaits" a donc plusieurs origines possibles : prodiguer des souhaits de bonne santé, protéger la personne du mauvais sort, ou encore féliciter la personne chanceuse qui éternue.

Il me semble qu'une personne avait déjà mis ces explications sur le site, mais c'est il y a assez longtemps et je ne m'en souvenais pas vraiment, tu as bien fait de raviver ma mémoire, merci Jo !
