Since Versus Because

Here's a short tip: since and because can be used interchangeably. In fact, Merriam-Webster's online dictionary lists since as a synonym for because, and both of them can mean "for the reason that". For example: "I'm going to the movies because it's raining", or "since it's raining, I'm going to the movies".
