  • « à vos souhaits » for someone you vouvoie (see vouvoyer). Equivalent to the English “bless you” after a sneeze. There's a sequence:

    First sneeze — à tes souhaits !   (lit.) to your wishes!
    Second sneeze — à tes amours !   to your loves! (to which the sneezer can respond que les tiennes durent toujoursles vôtres for a vous — may yours last forever!)
    Third sneeze — à tes aïeux !   to your ancestors!
    Fourth sneeze — crève !   die (choke)!

    Or:

    à tes souhaits belle plante !   bless you, beautiful woman!
    merci fleur charmante !   thank you, delightful flower!
    y'a pas de quoi vieille branche !   don't mention it, old chap!
    or
    ta gueule pot de fleur !   shut your gob, flowerpot! (?!)

    so many more! http://www.expressio.fr/expressions/a-vos-souhaits.php
