I love those, here they are called May flower.
My grandmother was very fond of these flowers, and used to cultivate several different colors. She told a religious belief that Christ's crown of thorns wept tears, which gave rise to the plant. And, for this reason, it always flourishes near the friday of the passion of Christ.

Amy check out the flowers - they are very different. If your flower looks like mine then it's an Easter Cactus. The plants without flowers look very much alike but when the flowers open they are totally different

The leaves on Easter Cactus are much more rounded & are thicker than on Christmas Cactus. These also have "spiky" bits on the leaves. The leaves are thinner & a slightly different shape.
