I was told to “rest” the bird before carving.  What does it mean and what is the proper way of doing it?

When I take my Zacky Farms turkey out of the oven to rest, I do so by completely covering the turkey in foil so that the steam continues to marinate the turkey in it’s own juices, therefore you have a moist turkey.  Do no carve the turkey for at least a half hour out of the oven, and it will be moist and rested.
