Untimely Christmas cactus

The Christmas cacti I have at TSV normally bloom twice a year, once around end of August and another around end of November.
This pot of cactus bloomed last year as usual, in August.

Right after that I sent it down to Can Tho to a friend because she could not make this kind of plant to bloom down there. After the first wave of blooms faded, she kept the plant for a few more months but nothing came. So she returned it to me.
Now, in April, it's budding up and about to bloom.

Should I say that this plant is compensating me with these blooms to make up for its absence last November?

The blooms are beautiful! I have not come across such a big one before. The ones they are selling here are in small pots.
