Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is a misspelling, because the word halloween doesn’t come from word hello, but hallow, which in Old English meant someone saint. Halloween is a modern name for Scottish all hallows eve. Therefore
helloween is a mistake.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word Halloween comes from Old English word hallow, which meant a saint person. The full word is a short form from Scottish allhallow-even – all saints eve. Therefore the correct form is Halloween, not
helloween (which is probably a misspelling connected with word hello).
