Rice

Mythical and Mystical Rice-themed Folktales

Mystique and magic are woven into stories transforming the commonplace to something that is otherworldly. Folk wisdom highlights the importance of not wasting a single grain of rice. Tales of the ill fortune and horrible bad luck that follow, even in the after life, have persuaded many generations of children not to take this staple for granted, and not to leave even a single grain of rice in their bowls.
