Quite apart from several other comments, some repeated, note that quite what these P-values mean collectively is highly unclear. Overlapping windows of time series cannot be independent of each other! You would be fighting with at least three issues simultaneously, overlap; inference for related time series; and multiple comparisons! Conversely, if you just want the P-value as an indication of strength of relationship, then go for a measure of strength of relationship that is less fragile and more directly related to the (social) science of what you are doing.
