Spar (supermarket)
Spar (marketing name SPAR) is an international chain of supermarkets, founded in 1932 in Zegwaart by Adriaan van Well. Originally, the motto of the organization was: Door Eendrachtig Samenwerken Profiteren Allen Regelmatig " (* translated: By Working Together in One Way, All Benefit Regularly), from which the acronym DE SPAR arose, later as a result of entering the international market shortened to SPAR. The grocers affiliated with DE SPAR retained their own independence and through their joint purchasing and advertising, they created their advantage.

A fairy tale, fairytale, wonder tale, magic tale, fairy story or Märchen is an instance of European folklore genre that takes the form of a short story. Such stories typically feature mythical entities such as dwarfs, dragons, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, griffins, mermaids, talking animals, trolls, unicorns, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments. In most cultures, there is no clear line separating myth from folk or fairy tale; all these together form the literature of preliterate societies. Fairy tales may be distinguished from other folk narratives such as legends (which generally involve belief in the veracity of the events described) and explicit moral tales, including beast fables.
