I don't think Emmy is primarily referring to her neighbors putting up Christmas trees, but to Merchants - Christmas movies and commercials on TV, Christmas displays in the stores.
Actually, I watch a cat rescue channel on YouTube and the couple already had theirs up in their living room. I guess I shouldn't have used that as an example though, since it's only one couple. :p

But yeah, stores have Christmas stuff out already too. I went in the Walmart Neighborhood Market and they already had a long row of Christmas candy displayed.
