Who knows where this one came from. Modern dehydrated rice is different from wild grains, but in order to expand it needs to be submerged in boiling water, not a teeny little bird’s stomach. The idea that any bird would be killed by eating any sort of grain is odd, when you think about it. But this myth won’t go away. Everyone still thinks that birds will explode when the rice expands. And fine, it seems like a silly tradition anyway, so sure, if people stop throwing rice, it’s probably a good thing.

Plus, lots of hard little bits of uncooked rice + concrete church steps could spell trouble for aging in-laws.
