@ZipLine-- I love orchids too. Last year, my sister had a white Christmas tree and white orchids. They were so beautiful. It really was a white Christmas at her house.
I don't have orchids. I just have a Christmas cactus. It also blooms around Christmas time. It doesn't look like a typical cactus, it has long green stems that kind of look like leaves. And the flowers bloom at the end. Mine has pink flowers.
If it blooms a lot, the Christmas cactus looks pretty, if not, then not so much. They're definitely not as pretty as Christmas orchids.
