I found more info…Gene Autry with co-writer Oakley Haldeman in 1947. Not sure how specific I needed to be…Thanks!

Gene Autry wrote it in 1947. Interesting story found on Wikepedia: "Autry got the idea for the song after riding his horse in the 1946 Santa Claus Lane Parade in Los Angeles, during which crowds of spectators chanted, “Here comes Santa Claus”. This inspired him to write a song that Haldeman set to music. A demo recording was made by singer/guitarist Johnny Bond, whose recording made use of ice cubes to mimic the sound of the jingling sleigh-bells. This inspired the use of real sleigh-bells in Autry’s own recording of the song."

Those Bluebird Boots are beautiful…no wonder they were his favorites!

As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, and no one brought more truth to that phrase than Santo Domingo Pueblo jewelry artisans. These masterpieces were made from whatever they could find.
