They bloom more on a schedule based on dormancy, water and light than time of year. It sounds like they were possibly inadvertently put into a dormant state (this can happen if the plant is left unwatered for a period of time) and received the required amount of dark hours at that same time. When normal care resumed, the Christmas cactus went into blooming stage.
