Diwali/Deepavali - Is the festival's light started dimming?

Diwali is no more the same which I used to experience a 5 yr b4. Earlier I could feel the festive mood even a month b4 the actual day. Now its all gone. I remember Diwali now just becoz I get a leave on that day. What happened in 5 yrs? Is it just me feeling like this or everyone who read this feel the same? Is it becoz I am a grown-up now who doesn't have anything to do on that special day? or Is it the TV channels that is killing the festive mood? or All the people just realized (wrongly) that Diwali should not burn their money in the name of crackers? I am confused totally. Any help is appreciated.
