Christmas cactuses (and Easter cactuses) need a certain temp and sunlight in the day, and a certain temp (and darkness) at night. The day temp is higher than the night temp, obviously. They also don't like to be overwatered.

You can probably find the temps online. I think it's somewhat close to in the high 60s daytime and 50s nighttime. That's why they bloom at Christmas.

Mine did best in a large, airy, old Craftsman house in Syracuse, NY. We could barely heat the place it was so huge. They were in a southeast (daytime sunny) room. It was quite cold there at night.
