Please, name this plant

I received a cutting of this plant as a gift back in Nov. 2013 months ago. At first, it didn't seem to be doing well, but then when Spring started, it began growing new little leaves and it's just fascinating. Can someone please tell me what plant this is?

It looks like Christmas cactus.

Thank you, Whitelacey. I posted another picture of the leaves in case the first isn't clear. I'll check out Christmas Cactus.

It's Schlumbergera truncata, Thanksgiving cactus, though stores sell them with labels that say "Christmas cactus."

Here is a link that might be useful: Care & recognition of holiday cacti
