I have heard bits and pieces about St. Nicholas growing up but I'm not sure if I have ever heard this version. (or at least if I did, I sure don't remember it) But I kind of like it and like how there seems to be more meaning to what he did rather than just give money or gifts away to needy people. The funniest part is that I'm not sure if I ever picked up on the fact that the real St. Nicholas was from Turkey. I think I always pictured him from Germany or that part of the world. It would be interesting if St. Nicholas evolved into something that reflected more of the real story.
