Ceiling light

Hi everyone.
I'm trying to replace ceiling lights in my living room. There are two lights and one switch with two little switches for each light.

So when I took the old lamps off, from one of the holes there are 3 sets of blue, brown and green wires. And the other one 2 sets. But on my lamps there are just 3 holes L, N and one for the green wire. Do I just put them all together? So one of the lamps would have 3 brown, 3 blue and 3 green wires going to it and the other one would have 2 sets of each? Is that normal?

Sorry but I find your description very confusing!!!

Perhaps some pictures would help.

What I can tell you is that Blue is Neutral, Brown is line (voltage) and Green is ground.

How was everything hooked up on the old fixtures?

"...one switch with two little switches for each light..." Is this correct??? I'm afraid you'll have to give us a picture as I have never seen one switch that has two little switches on it. It is possible that you have a switch and a slider/dimmer?

Sorry I've tried adding pictures and links and its not working for some reason.

It's just a basic light switch but operates 2 separate lights in the same room.
So I've took off both light fixtures and ceiling roses and got exposed wires coming out from the ceiling. The first hole has 3 sets of wires - 3 blue, 3 green and 3 brown. The second hole has 2 sets of wires.

I'm gonna try again to add some photos.

By the sound of it you are in Europe as your wire colors are not North American.
I do not know how they do things in Europe.

Here when you take a light off there is a metal connection box that the fixture mounts to and the connections from the house wiring to the fixture wiring are done.
