On page www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/christmas-cactus/how-to-propagate-and-plant-christmas-cactus.htm it says: "...taking a short, Y-shaped cutting from the stem tip.." What does that mean?

The best cuttings are those that have two smaller segments growing from one segment, thus a Y shape, as in some of the pictures of the cuttings on this page:

However, if you can't find this on your plant, a cutting that includes 2-3 segments growing in a straight line instead of a Y shape should also root.
