That is really weird to me: in both Spain and Mexico Christianity is the main religion. According to the Christian faith, Jesus was the son of God, and he himself was a God. (right?) Both Jesús the name and Jesús the God are spelled and pronounced in the same way in Spanish. I get it, it’s a different culture, etc., but still… in a country where some 70 or 80 percent of the population believes in a God they name their children after this God (is he? Or he’s just a son?). I wonder if they feel strange saying phrases like “Jesus, you little brat, come here already, dinner’s getting cold!”. And to top it off when you sneeze in Spain, you’re more than likely to hear back “Jesús”. You know, like a “bless you”. So imagine: someone sneezes, another guy says “Jesús”, and a third guy turns his back and says “Que?”
I’ve just felt an urge to go to Spain just to witness that.
