The secular world uses BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era), though some people substitute "Christian" for "Common". Not that it matters if they do, we're all too aware that Christians exist.

The Gregorian Calender was an altered Julian Calender, same amount of days and leap years already present. It's like winter solstice,spring solstice, you call them Christmas and Easter, you Christianized existing Pagan celebrations.
You steal everything.
