Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light". Diwali celebrates this through festive fireworks, lights, flowers, sharing of sweets, and worship. While the story behind Dipavali varies from region to region, the essence is the same to rejoice in the inner light (Atman) or the underlying reality of all things (Brahman).
At my school we had a Diwali celebration today and we did a Bollywood dance with food and music, if I can I will post the video too!
