Pax!

(Crossposted from facebook, because venta isn't on there afaik, and I'd be interested in her input as well as others!)

Was discussing the Opies earlier today (husband and wife team who collated children's rhymes etc.) and I found the wikipedia entry on 'truce terms' used by children (the most widespread geographically being 'pax'). It doesn't mention Yorkshire, and I can't remember any such word being in use. Tell me, oh facebook LJ peeps, did you have truce words? And where are you from?
