    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) -

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

    jlen03It should be noted that the game doesn't automatically save after speaking with Calendar Man--exiting through the upstairs door will remedy this.

    *UPDATED FOR 2020*
    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 10/ Mother's Day
    June 21/ Father's Day
    July 4/ Fourth of July
    August 16/ St. Roch's Day
    September 7/ Labor Day
    October 31/ Halloween
    November 26/ 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. 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.

    {UPDATED 2014}
    The "Storyteller" Achievement requires you to speak to Calendar Man on each Holiday circled on the calendar located right outside of his cell in the Solomon Wayne Courthouse in Park Row. To get to Calendar Man's cell, enter through the back door of the courthouse, then go down the stairs to the right from where you enter.

    The holidays needed for 2014 are:

    January 1/ New Years Day
    February 14/ Valentine's Day
    March 17/ St. Patrick's Day
    April 1/ April Fools Day
    May 11/ Mother's Day
    June 15/ Father's Day
    July 4/ Fourth of July
    August 16/ St. Roch's Day
    September 1/ Labor Day
    October 31/ Halloween
    November 27/ Thanksgiving
    December 25/ Christmas

    If waiting for the holidays isn't your style, you can get this achievement offline by manually setting your date to the dates required.
    (NOTE: You will not get a timestamp if you get the achievement like this.)
    My advice (If you haven't started yet) is use the offline method to get all but one of the dates, preferably the closest date to the day it happens to be when you start this, then wait for that date to roll around and BAM, timestamp.

    If you lose track of the dates that you do have, worry not, any date you have talked to him will be crossed out on the calendar outside of his cell.
