The Great Online Shopping Festival (GOSF) which will be on from December 10-12 involving over 300 online retailers, was created by Google India on December 2012 in collaboration with a number of Indian online shopping portals. The concept of the GOSF was that the online shopping sites would give heavy discounts for one day, in order to promote their sales. The concept of a one-day online sale originated in the United States, where many online shopping sites offer discounts on ‘Cyber Monday’, the first Monday after the so-called Black Friday, the day that follows the U.S. Thanksgiving.
