Still each year just before the Christmas it starts to blossom reminding me about the coming holiday season. I have never understood why it opens the flowers during the darkest time of the year but it does make me happy and smile. I guess it is his way of reminding me about the beautiful things and its own existence.
PS. It seems that the only way to kill a Christmas cactus is to over water it. Just leave it be and it seems to flourish.
