I was born in 1985 and grew up (mostly) in Sharon, PA (on the OH) border. My friends and I always said Olly Olly oxen free. In never even occurred to that there may other variations until I decided to look the phrase up. I also lived in FL and IN growing up, and I can’t remember if my friends used the phrase in either of those places. I know it was common in PA, though.
When is it okay to use the phrase olly olly oxen free? Can I use it if someone days my name and I reply olly olly oxen free because spencer hasting from pretty little liars used it in the same way.
