Christmas Cactus in Bloom

a02Although we’re having the Big Bird Meal today—more convenient for family, we had very nice roasted pork yesterday—it’s now past Thanksgiving.

So I guess it’s timely for this plant to bloom.


We’ve had several Christmas Cactus plants over the years, and this is one of two we have currently. The other is ailing and will be lucky to survive—but this one, which has bloomed several years in a row, is pretty robust.


Welcome to the holiday season, also known as the time of tiresome music on the radio. Has anybody in modern America ever roasted a chestnut on an open fire?
