    What is the Difference Between "At Afternoon" and "In the Afternoon"?

    English is not my primary language, so I find it very hard to understand. I am writing a blog post about the activity that I did today at (in the?) afternoon. I am not sure what should I use in the sentence? Do "at afternoon" and "in the afternoon" have the same meaning? If No! then what is the difference between these two terms? How should I use them in sentence?

    We don't say "At Afternoon."  That grammar is incorrect.  Don't talk like that.  It's always "in the afternoon."

    When you say "At afternoon" it indicates "afternoon" is a place and not a time. Since Afternoon is a time, we say "in the afternoon."
    If you want to say "at" when speaking about time you could say "at 12" or "at 1" or "at 2". If not a specific time then say "in the afternoon."
