We have to go to the kings rule to find the reason. Normally in south people worship Shiva and Sakthi (wife of shiva or parvathi). Very less people especially in Andhra people worship Vishnu that too in the form of Balaji and Sri Ram. In the north majority worship Vishnu and Ganesha. So, naturally there is less importance to Diwali in South than north.

It is the question of faith. You cannot generalise your feeling with entire south

IN SOUTH THEY DO CELEBRATE, BUT NOT AS LIKE NORTHERN PART OF INDIA. IN SOUTH THE REGIONAL FESTIVALS PLAY A VITAL ROLE.
