    This achievement requires you to talk to Calendar Man on certain dates. You can find Calendar Man in the basement of the court house (It's in the back of the building where you rescue Cat Woman in the beginning of the game).

    The dates (for the year 2012) are:

    January 1
    February 14
    March 17
    April 1
    May 13 - (2013 = May 12)
    June 17 - (2013 = June 16)
    July 4
    August 16 - (2013 = no idea if the date is the same, Feast of St. Roch)
    September 3 - (2013 = September 2)
    October 31
    November 22 - (2013 = November 28)
    December 25

    You will have to wait for these dates, or go offline and set the date of your xbox manually (See Lainey80's comment for detailed description). Everytime you talked with him on a right date, the appropriate month will be marked on the calendar next to the cell.

    - It appears that sometimes different dates are needed due to the year settings of the console, just check the calendar after you did a date that is the same every year (e.g. X-mas day: December 25) and all the other dates that are needed should be marked on the calendar (Credits go to stevivor and Shinwasha for finding this out) -

    British LegendsYou can obtain this with the achievement Timestamp without talking to the calendar man on a specific day. I have just tested this and it worked for me unlocking the achievement.

    I visited the calendar man on every day required by going offline and changing the date. Then on the last date I needed, I changed the date whilst offline went back to the calendar man, and as soon as I pressed cn_A I pushed the cn_guide guide button and signed in to Xbox live. When I closed the guide and the game continued, the achievement popped about 2 seconds later with the timestamp. :) Don't believe me? Check when I unlocked the achievement and you'll see it wasn't on a holiday. Hope this helps.

    SubtleEel4I just got this one legit today. It gave me an excuse to turn on the old Xbox 360 once a month.

    *UPDATED FOR 2018*
    The "Storyteller" Achievement requires you to speak to Calander Man on each famous Holiday of every month so if you dont wanna wait a year I would suggest the following:

    In the Court House where you save Catwoman from Two-Face there is a door to the left, enter in and on the right as you enter you will see a set of stair leading to the Basement where you will see a calander with 12 dates circled these are the dates your have to speak with Calander Man...go back up the stairs and continue to the right you will find a door leading outside this is counted as a saving point/ checkpoint allowing you to save your progess everytime you exit.

    Head to the Dashboard/ System Settings/ Console Settings/ Clock/ Date & Time (Note: Make sure you are disconnected from Xbox Live so you can change the date allowing you to sign on to your Gamertag while being able to change your date keeping it from automatically setting itself.)

    Head into the game, the save point should be outside the Court House side door. Head down stairs and speak to Calander Man where he will spill his horror stories of each murderous date. Repeat these steps to obtain the achievement.

    January 1/ New Years Day
    February 14/ Valentine's Day
    March 17/ St. Patrick's Day
    April 1/ April Fools Day
    May 13/ Mother's Day
    June 17/ Father's Day
    July 4/ Fourth of July
    August 16/ St. Roch's Day
    September 3/ Labor Day
    October 31/ Halloween
    November 22/ Thanksgiving
    December 25/ Christmas

    Note: If your wondering what days you have done or need to remember which days the calander hanging next to his cell will cross out the months you have talked to him on the right dates. Also the dates I have posted will be circled on the calander for easy reference. (The calander is also a part of one of the Riddler's Riddles)

    You can obtain this with the achievement Timestamp without talking to the calendar man on a specific day. I have just tested this and it worked for me unlocking the achievement.

    British Legends: I visited the calendar man on every day required by going offline and changing the date. Then on the last date I needed, I changed the date whilst offline went back to the calendar man, and as soon as I pressed cn_A I pushed the cn_guide guide button and signed in to Xbox live.

    Solution for getting this achievement online in about a month instead of a year.

    Edit: The next date you can get this achievement online is Sunday 25th December 2016
    This solution involves changing the date on your Xbox 360, which can only be done when you are not connected to Xbox LIVE. Here are the 3 ways you can do this:
    1. Add a pass code to your account profile (Account - Account Security - Pass Code) and set your account profile to auto sign-in (Profile - Sign-in Preferences - Profile Auto Sign-In - On). That way when you turn on your Xbox 360 you will be signed in offline.
    2. If you connect your Xbox 360 to your network using a network cable then unplug it.
    3a. If you have the original Xbox 360 and you have the wireless adapter then disconnect it.
    3b. If you have the newer Xbox 360 S or Xbox 360 E, you cannot disconnect the wireless adapter, so you need to go to System Settings - Network Settings, select your wireless network and press cn_Y to Disconnect (make sure you know your WPA or WEP pass key as you will need it to reconnect).

    Press cn_guide
    - From the Settings blade select System Settings
    - Press cn_A to select Console Settings
    - Go down to Clock and press cn_A
    - Press cn_A to select Date and Time
    - Set the date to the first one on the list below for your country
    - Press cn_A to select and save the date change
    Press cn_guide
    - From the Home blade (your Gamertag) select Play Batman: Arkham City
    Select Continue Story and go to the door around the back of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse

    [REPEAT FROM HERE]
    Go through the door into the Soloman Wayne Courthouse and down the stairs
    Talk to Calendar Man (Julian Day)
    Go back up the stairs and through the door to Park Row
    Wait for the game to finish saving (spinning white Batman logo in lower right corner)
    Press cn_guide
    - From the Settings blade select System Settings
    - Press cn_A to select Console Settings
    - Go down to Clock and press cn_A
    - Press cn_A to select Date and Time
    - Set the date to the next one on the list below for your country
    - Press cn_A to select and save the date change
    Press cn_guide
    - From the Home blade (your Gamertag) select Play Batman: Arkham City
    Go to REPEAT FROM HERE

    Repeat until you get to the last but one on the list below for your country.

    Now you should reconnect your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live and wait until it is the last date on the list. Load the game on this date and return to Calendar Man one last time.

    Vice DestroyerThanks for that. I'll be very glad to get this achievement time stamped. I'll do two of the holidays each day until 7/9/15.

    Vice DestroyerForget doing two each day. Just sat through every single day, bar the one in September.
