Winterfylleth was the Anglo-Saxon or Old English name for the month of October. It marked and celebrated the beginning of winter.
The name of the month was recorded by the Venerable Bede. Though in modern times in this month, Halloween is celebrated in America, England and elsewhere, it is not linked to Old English tradition, though many of the customs are English in origin.
There is an English black-metal band named Winterfylleth.
