: What is "the red mist" and where is the expression "the red mist descends" from?

If someone sees red or the red mist, they lose their temper and self-control completely.

Here is the US we use the phrase "I am seeing red right now" to signify anger. I have never heard "the red mist descends" here in the NE part of the US.

The color red has come to signify strength, health, vigor, lust and danger.
