Christmas-themed ads on telly. In the middle of October. Similarly, my local stupormarket has had mince pies for about three weeks now.
Pay attention to Woolies and Coles on January 2 for the Hot Cross Buns - As a really old person it started as a marketing thing to get people's money earlier under the guise of layby's etc where they helped ease the "Christmas Burden" by allowing you to start buying your stuff 3 mths before ish ( there has also been Christmas in July pushes on occassions). And now its just the norm - Christmas lights in particular are all snapped up early to make garish neighborhood displays for people to ogle

Mince pies are the greatest treat ever and should be available year round!
Also, although I hate it, I've already started my xmas shopping as some items will be high demand/low stock, and shipping is going to be a nightmare
