What's the difference between Deepavali and Divali? Wikipedia lists both spellings so I'm wondering they mean something different.

They are same.Saying Diwali is convinient than Deepavali.Calendars say Deepavali.Political leaders always wish Happy Deepavali on their posters.People wish Happy Diwali to each other.

Deepawali is the original Sanskrit term, which means "lines/arrays of lanterns". Diwali is just a commonly spoken hindi shortform.

BTW, Diwala is another linked term, which means "going bankrupt". Diwali and Diwala are related in a way. Although the original purpose of Deepawai was to celeberate the home coming of Lord Ram to his home town Ayodhya, people also worship Laxmi, the goddess of riches, on Diwali. Diwala is probably a term derived from that.

Diwali - festival of lights ( some call it the festival of noise :-) ).
A hell lot of firecrackers are used during the span of 3-4 days.
Its very enjoyable to the ones who participate in it but turns out to be irritating to the elderly and very small babies when firecrackers with very high decibel levels are set off.

some positive steps are being taken up by authorities to clamp down on crackers with very high decibel levels.

Overall it still fun and ejoyable with all the festivities, sweets and holidays - Happ diwali to all
