Is it possible to calculate what is the voltage need for and LED that is in a christmas light set? Answered

It says that its 120 volt and 0,5 A but there are 2 resitors on each end of the set of light and there are a couple more solder to some LED(like 2-3..), but these resistors are not all the same...So is it possible to calculate to power require to light an LED in my set without burning it ? Thank you!?

LEDs of the same color generally require the same voltage. What color are the LEDs?
