    Offline Method:

    This method involves changing the date/time of your console. If you do not agree with this method, an online method is included below.

    1. Go to "My Games & Apps" > "Apps" > "Settings" > "Network" and then "Go offline" & "Forget Wireless Network"
    2. Hard reset your console by holding the power button for 5-10 seconds.
    3. Sign in and go to "My Games & Apps" > "Apps" > "Settings" > "System" and then change the date to any of the follow dates:

    January 1 - "Baby Shark Petting"
    October 31 - "Danger, Carnage Zone"
    December 25 - "Danger, This Soffish, DO NOT EAT!"

    4. With the changed date, load Halo MCC, select a custom game in Halo 2 Classic on Zanzibar.
    5. Go to the beach and look at the sign next to water.
    6. Go to "My Games & Apps" > "Apps" > "Settings" > "Network" and connect to your wireless connection by selecting it and entering the password. The achievement will unlock as soon as your Xbox connects to Xbox Live.

    Online Method:

    January 1 - "Baby Shark Petting"
    July 7 - "Are you finding Ling-Ling's head?"

    OSanBrazilWorked for me just fine. Didn't have to hard reset my Series X, just restarted it from system options. And, since it was wired, just disconnected the cable and connected after viewing the sign on the beach.

    Here is an achievement guide with English commentary! I will be showing how to unlock the achievement without waiting for the next holiday! Essentially, you will have to disconnect from xbox live and change the date on your Xbox clock.

    OFFLINE METHOD CONFIRMED WORKING ON 9/22/2019:

    ***This is a physical disc only solution***

    Ill copy/paste some of the above text for the offline solution:

    Offline Method:

    This method involves having a physical MCC disc & changing the date/time of your console.

    1. Go to "My Games & Apps" > "Apps" > "Settings" > "Network" and then "Go offline" & "Forget Wireless Network"
    2. Go to "My Games & Apps" > Halo MCC > Delete Everything Here. The idea is to clear all title updates and such. Delete MCC from your xbox.
    3. Reset your console.
    4. Sign in and install MCC via disc, without going online.
    5. After installation, open MCC
    6. Go to xbox settings, time/date, and set date to December 25th 2014 or whatever.
    7. Start a custom game on Zanzibar and go view the sign on the beach.
    8. Go back to xbox settings and connect to the internet.
    9. Go back to MCC and it should close automatically to install updates
    10. Open the game when it says "ready to start". My achievement popped after a few minutes sitting in the menus.

    January 1 - "Baby Shark Petting"
    October 31 - "Danger, Carnage Zone"
    December 25 - "Danger, This Soffish, DO NOT EAT!"

    This is not my method - It was copied/pasted by @MAKA91 above, I only added in the physical disc solution.

    Possible these have been patched(2018/2019). I just tried on H2 and H3. Nothing came up using the offline method.

    I'll try on official dates online.
