Default Guy at high school has changed really quickly in a very short time

I know a guy at my high school who I sometimes have classes with, and during the first year (all throughout 2016-2017, basically) he was really quiet and almost never spoke to anyone, unless someone initiated a conversation with him, at which point he seemed perfectly polite and smiled etc, although he was mostly by himself and a lot of us thought that he was kind of difficult to deal with - he didn't exactly appear socially awkward, although he was definitely quiet (I have had a couple conversations with him and also worked in the same group as him on a physics laboration once, so I am a bit familiar with him - he didn't seem to have any problem working in groups);
I guess you could call him "very reserved".
But then after this last Christmas break, he suddenly seemed very different the first day I saw him - the moment he saw me he actually smiled at me, which he normally never does like that to anyone, and he sat own beside me an seemed totally relaxed in every possible way.
He smiled and sometimes even laughed a bit (in a charming way), and he asked me how my day had been and seemed to be really at ease with everything - the best way I can describe it is that he seemed to be completely free from all worries and from all hints of any form of anxiety, and he seemed really positive and enjoyed the situation.
He had more or less the same kind of delighted calm about him as someone who is under the influence of laughing gas, except he wasn't actually giggly or anything like that, he just had the same kind of calmness about him.
This is of course very good and everything, but I just find it a bit strange - I have never seen anyone change this quickly before, and it makes me feel a bit confused.
What do you think could have happened?
I would like to ask him myself, but I feel like it's his own business and that I might sound intrusive or something if I do that.

You'll never know if you ask.

Simple open ended questions, which don't actually ask anything, are the best here...

"Did something good happen over Christmas, you've seemed a lot happier since then?"

"I never asked, how was your Christmas?"

It could just be who he is, there doesn't necessarily have to be a reason behind it. I'm like that too sometimes, I could be all reserved and isolated from the crowd if I have something going on or if I'm upset about something, and then I might be feeling more open and welcoming a few weeks later.
And it's possible he's just a shy guy, there are soo many insecure guys like that who don't know how to act in public. It's possible he just loosened up a little bit after break, maybe he got a really cool present, who knows? I guess if he's really open now you can try to be his friend. Too much curiosity can drive someone crazy trust me, don't put yourself through that haha.
