Why does our culture suggest that we have to say something to someone after s/he sneezes?

Because it's the polite thing to do.

It's from old superstitions and has simply become common practice.

If a person sneezes I will say gesundheit purely out of habit.

Saying nothing is considered somewhat rude. There's even a Seinfield about it:).
