In rural India, and mostly in some urban states of India, it is common folklore that Hiccups are indications of someone missing you.

It is so believed, rather widely, too, that if a person is having hiccups, he/she is being missed/being thought of, by some other person at that exact same moment.

It has been, time and again, tagged an Old wives' tale, but the myth grows larger everyday.

Also, it is popular belief that if someone sneezes right after you've made a statement, the likelihood of what you've just said, happening is very possible.

For example, If I say, "I want to go on a date with Elizabeth Olsen" and someone sneezes right after I finish this statement, the chances of me going on a date with Ms. Olsen are highly possible.

Yet another Old wives' tale, but the belief and practice of this is so widespread across India, that you'll be surprised.

There's a comparable folk belief in parts of Central Europe. If you sneeze while some is saying something, this means that what is said is true.

This folk belief is most associated with Hungary, and is referenced in the stage musical Háry János, but I'm aware that it also exists in parts of Poland and in Slovakia.

In the Netherlands, if someone sneezes thrice, people will say, "Ah, that means nice weather, tomorrow!".
If someone sneezes twice, people will therefore beg for a third one.

Do you think I could make a living in the Netherlands by sneezing? It's rare for me to sneeze less than seven times in a session.

Not sure - I seem to remember that 4+ sneezes are the harbinger of bad weather.
