Great, thought-provoking question ... and it's something I've thought about frequently. Here's what I've come up ... and surprisingly (or not) these are the same things that made me happy when I was 15 years old. I apologize if I fall into the side of Hallmark.

Spending time with family and friends, an intellectual/philosophical challenge, authenticity, when great things happen to people I care about, feeling grounded, wind, just about any kind of music, being outdoors or being active, people who have great spirit .... and when a quirky piece of furniture fits perfectly into a room (albeit, it's a brief happy.)

And yes, I've tried delving into reasons my once-happy friends don't seem so happy any more. Sometimes I think they are overwhelmed or they relinquished their dreams. But in my humble opinion, you're never too old and it's never too late.
