Britain already has a day dedicated to that. It's called 'Saturday'!

Indeed cushla, though of course it's not a day that would represent Britain, as you suggested.

However, as far as that day goes it surprises me that the English do not make more of that day, especially as it is the day that Shakespeare is thought to have been born, and is certainly the day he died.

Problem is that the English have been encouraged to think of themselves as being British first, English second, unlike Scots, Welsh and N. Ireland.
