Do LED Lights Get Hot?

After an ordinary light bulb has been on for a few second it becomes too hot to touch do you think an LED light gets too hot in that way why or why not?

LED Lights do not get hot in the sense of creating heat that will burn a person or melt a surface. In fact, an LED bulb that has been on for days can be unscrewed with bare hands! A very small immeasurable amount of heat is generated during the process of the current flowing to the semiconductor, but this heat is so miniscule it can barely be detected. This is one of the greatest advantages of LED lighting for a number of reasons.
