falloween

noun; blending
First part of fall, during which items are advertised and sold for the Halloween holiday The author was complaining about the amount of lead-up given to Halloween by certain people, especially in stores. He argued that Halloween-themed items were in stores for the entire first half of fall, instead of just right before the holiday, creating a new season, which he dubbed, somewhat derisively, with a blend of 'fall' and 'Halloween.'
 
Don't get me started on outfits for pets or the move to extend the holiday into an event that runs for a whole season so that it becomes-you'll love this-'Falloween.
Etymology : 'fall' (season that runs from mid-September to mid-December) + 'Halloween' (holiday that falls at the end of October)
