Proffessional christmas light installers use LED retrofit bulbs where the LED itself is shaped kinda like an old school incandescent with the same "screw in" at the bottom. The individual LEDs are designed to easily screw into conventional light sockets. All the rediculous mumbo-jumbo components of LED lights are all isolated with-in the individual bulb. Any components fail, only the bulb (made of robust poly-carbonate material) goes out, all the others still work! Just change the bulb.
 
These are not available in stores, and can only be purchased by a handful of select suppliers who work exclusively with professionals. They are quite expensive: At around $2.00/bulb + $12 for a 25' conventional string. This makes it $60.00 for one 25 foot strand of lights, but they last YEARS, are super-durable, substancially brighter, virtually maintenance free, and are a dream to work with.
