Why are we toosing rice to the newly weds?
Lately Ive passed by the church and saw a newly wed coming out of the church door and people are ready to throw them rice. They have already adopt the asian tradition here. What's this tradition all about? Rice is not only healthy but also an Asian Fertility symbol. The newly wed are toss with rice to wish them both that they will be bless informing their and be bestowed with a lot of children. A disadvantage of this ritual according to the old one is that A bird who pick the rice will die because it will suffer from indigestion. Better bring sweeper and dustpan. Or throw corn kernel heheh... effective naman kaya yun!
