Often, over-watering a housplant is curtains for it. Maybe if you explained
the occurance it would help. Do the plants look bad now? Are they swimming in
water? When did it happen, or were they over-watered for a long time?
I have two of these plants potted together. They might be more of the
"Thanksgiving" variety. They are in an east window against the pane. There
should be neon pink blooms in a day or so, and the salmon (on the inside) has
smaller buds. I didn't do much but neglect the plants. Whenever I first see
buds, I never ever move the plants. The soil is very dry, but I will only
water if I have to.
If these plants were given to me, I would put them in a bright window and not
water them for some time. As someone else here mentioned, you can get cuttings
from the stems and get new plants.
The neon pink blooms came into being today.

Christmas cactus are sensitive to wet feet. Take 2 or 3 fresh
cuttings while the plant is still alive. The soil should be kept
slightly damp and more dry during the winter months. I water mine
about twice a month, then every week during the growing season (spring
to fall). Provide quick drainage.
