Why does Smallville take a break?

It's very simple - TV and filming wise. In the case of the TV reason - usually there's only 22 episodes a season and they want to be able to air the majority of them when they feel they'll get the best ratings. Filming reason - the actors work July until like April and that's a daily schedule including even the weekend at times if last second changes have to be done so they do it to give the actors a break which is something the production team don't really get much of since they work nearly daily excluding special cases such as holidays.
