Why don't sparklers burn you? i don't understand if they're hot then how do they have little heat? and were learning about electric forces so it must have something with that

Sparklers produce light by means of an electroluminescent reaction. A chemical reaction excites an electronically excited state, which relases a photon of light. Although sparklers may appear "white hot", they are not. Glow sticks operate similarly.
