"Professor James Barr, professor of Hebrew at Oxford University agrees that the words used in Genesis 1 refer to ‘a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience’, and he says that he knows of no professor of Hebrew at any leading university who would say otherwise."

The Hebrew word yôm was used in the Hebrew translation. Meaning a 24 hour day.

"yamim (plural of yôm) alone or with ‘evening and morning’, would have meant ‘and it was days of evening and morning’."

The Bible refers to God being the light. So that when their was darkness before creation, his presence brought light.

"2 Samuel 22:29
29 You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light."

"Matthew 6:22
22 "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light."

"John 9:5
5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

Of coarse, these interpretations could mean other things. Like knowledge, happiness, or a way out of evil living.
