Then vs. Than


Today is your lucky day! You have the special thrill of learning something far too many people don't understand. I'm going to solve for you the maddening conundrum of then and than.

Then - This has to do with the order of events.
First, I folded my paper napkin. Then, I put it in my lunchbox.
Than - This has to do with comparing things.
The Grammar Marm's hair bun is tighter than mine.

Now wasn't that easy? Easier than taking candy from a baby!
