Holidays in Europe (The Naughty Nought) is the second and last studio album by the Icelandic post-punk group Kukl, released on January 24, 1986, by Crass Records.

The album has been reissued numerous times: in 1997 by Crass Records, and in 2002, 2004 and 2008 by One Little Indian Records.


The album was recorded at Southern Studios in London between October 1984 and October 1985 and was produced by Penny Rimbaud of Crass and engineered by Mel Jefferson. The album was more complex in comparison to its predecessor The Eye, with greater use of electronic noise and distorted samples and keyboards.
