Dear Alex JJ,
As far as I know is there a Train from Rovaniemi - Kemi and then a Bus service to Haparanda/Tornio and then another bus Service from Haparanda to Lulea. I am not aware of the schedules since you have to look them up on different sites (gonna put the links below).

Train Schedules Rovaniemi - Kemi (https://www.vr.fi/en/)
Bus Schedules Kemi - Tornio/Haparanda (https://www.matkahuolto.fi/passengers/kemi-tornio-area-regional-ticket)
Bus Haparanda - Lulea (https://ltnbd.se/tidtabeller_print4web/print4web/Stomlinjer/201213_211211/Stomlinjer_20_201213_211211.pdf) or (https://ltnbd.se/en/plan-trip/)

I hope this answers your question to a certain extent.
PS: Please notice that in Mid-December could be an adjustment in timetables (like everywhere in Europe almost), normally schedules do not change but at the end of the year is the time where this timetable-change takes place and the new schedules will be released if.

Yours sincerely
Seve

DO have plan B ready, as its very, very common in Scandinavia to cancell ALL public transpo-be it train or bus, on such major holidays. Also on 31/12 it will cease around early afternoon. Follow the quoted local train sites for info on when info for new time becomes available
