In the old days, people thought that their souls left their bodies when they sneezed. They were worried that their souls might not get back into their bodies safely. So they said "Bless you" to pray for the safe return of the soul. No one believes it today, but people still say "Bless you" when they see somebody sneeze.

(What does 'it' refer to in 'believe it today'?)
