Here says 'then' can mean 'so far'.
It doesn't. It says:

In terms of formality, the least formal is
up to now
so far,
thus far, which is quite formal

The two thens mean 'after that (comes)'

I'd give the same answer to that question as tautophile did to the first.

With only ten federal holidays a year (eleven in inauguration years) , the USA is well down in the league table of countries' national holidays.

With the rapid approach of the end of the current crisis and the restarting of the great American economy under the inspired leadership of President Donald John Trump, is it not time for the magnificence of this president to be acknowledged in his own country? Unique in American history in being not only a gifted statesman, but probably the most successful businessman ever (in the diverse fields of real estate, hotels, golf courses, casinos,football leagues, airlines, cycle races, steaks, vodka, universities, etc) as well as being an immensely successful writer and television personality, President Donald John Trump has been criminally neglected in the area of recognition and acknowledgement.

My humble suggestion is that 14 June be set aside as the prime federal holiday of the year to celebrate the birthday of this giant of a man. The first such occasion could be marked by a massive military parade in the nation's capital to salute the President, followed by a party at which all the world's leaders could pay homage to the greatest man in the world. Individual citizens could arrange their own celebrations with the help of a check for $1,200 printed (n gold) with the name of the president and a voucher for a 50% discount on an assault rifle,.

This would be an appropriate day for the United States Congress, having set aside petty partisan politics, to mark as the day on which all laws restricting the ownership and use of guns be swept away, fake-news claims about the environment be outlawed, all vestiges of communistic health policies be destroyed, the barbaric crime of ending life in the womb be classified as first degree murder and all purveyors of fake news be summarily executed.

All Americans who believe in truth, democracy and the American way of life, one nation under Trump are called upon to contact their Representatives and Senators to demand this new holiday marking the dawn of a new era.

This televised address by Anglea Merkel should be a model for the leaders some of the rest of us are stuck with:
