New Year and Chirstmas doubt

I got a strange doubt.Can anybody help?

Whats A.D and B.C. (with respect to time)? Are they After Death(of chirst) and Before Chirst? If so.. what about the time when chirst was on earth? Wasn't it measured at all?

If time was measured with respect to Chirst, shouldn't new year start on 25th Dec rather than 1st jan? why is there 6 days gap?

I am not sure if I can help you clear the doubt. I can sure add to the confusion ;-)

Christ was born in 4 A.D.

So, the gap now is few years + the six days...
