    Would vs will

    As Ramadan ends with the first sight of the new moon in a few days, Muslims around the world are gearing to celebrate Eid al-Fitr along with their family and friends. This year, the sighting of the new moon is expected on 5 July marking the end of the month-long fasting and self-cleansing through prayers and charity.
    "Apart from attending special prayers at mosques, Muslims from around the world would wear new clothes and visit relatives." Why have they used "would" in the sentence? can you use present simple or will in the sentence? Thanks in advance.

    Without knowing what precedes the quoted sentence, there's no way to answer your question.
