My Christmas cactus has so many little roots coming from the joints on the stem that it is almost fuzzy. What do I need to do?

These are aerial roots and are nothing to be concerned about. Sometimes the plant will put out aerial roots prior to putting out flower buds. They should go away on their own without and issues to the plant.
