My poor poinsettias are confused!

A very confused Poinsettia! - This poor Poinsettia wasn't properly cared for during the year and remained green during the holidays. Now it thinks it's close to Christmas, I guess.

Here is a picture of one of them. I was so busy this winter that I completely forgot I was supposed to give them a prescribed cycle of light in order to bloom at Christmas so I just used them as green plants. Now they are turning, two are turning red and one is turning white! They were all green until a couple of weeks ago when they began to turn. Is this going to hurt them? Will I be able to persuade them to turn their lovely colors next winter?

My grandma had 2 that bloomed 9 months out of 12. She enjoyed them so much. They did fine at Christmas the next year.

They are awfully pretty! I guess I'll just leave them alone and see what they do. It should be fun to watch.
